A critical aspect of the scientific process is the reporting of new results in scientific journals in order to disseminate that information to the larger community of scientists.  Communication of research results contributes to the pool of knowledge within a given discipline.  Scientific journals only accept papers for publication after peer review by a small group of scientists who work in the same field and who recommend the paper be published (usually with some revision).

This one day workshop offers an overview about the different components of a research paper, along with practical advice on how to structure each section and how to draft your paper. In addition, it will also focus on how to enhance your understanding of how the peer review system works, and what editors are looking for in a well-written paper.

Many health benefits, particularly with regards to chronic disease such as heart attack and cancer,  have been attributed to increased intake of plant-based foods. However the mechanisms by which such products could exert their beneficial effects are not fully understood. Such foods, in addition to traditional nutrients, contains significant amounts of various phytochemicals which could impact of the consumer’s heath. The conference will explore the links between phytochemicals and chronic health impairments, including cancer, heart disease, Alzheimer’s and obesity. Lessons from animal nutrition, ways of modulating phytochemical intake and public health perspectives will also be presented and discussed.
