    About    

RACMEM Conference Objectives

To provide a forum for scientists from both academia and industry (nutritional/pharmaceutical) to meet and discuss the latest advances, controversies, and methodological issues related to the in-vivo assessment of energy expenditure and substrate oxidation in humans and animals. This two day program will consist of:

  • Keynote speakers known internationally for their work in metabolic research. 

  • Plenary sessions that will provide technical overviews of several state-of-the-art approaches to measuring energy expenditure and fuel utilization in humans and animals.

  • Breakout sessions that will address the design of calorimeter systems, the expression and analysis of metabolic data, advances in free-living assessments, and the implementation and monitoring of physical activity in humans and animals.

  • Free-communication sessions which will provide a venue for both oral and poster presentations by conference attendees.

  • Finally, extensive attention will be given to exhibitors interested in showing and presenting products that can be used for human and animal metabolic research.

Specific Learning Objectives

  • To review the latest approaches in measuring energy expenditure and fuel utilization in-vivo and establish basic standards for preclinical and clinical research.

  • To debate the current controversies in the expression and interpretation of metabolic data.

  • To assess the methodological and technological gaps in our pursuit to understand in-vivo fuel metabolism in order to direct research and development efforts.
