The realisation of the importance of the timing of food intake across a 24h period has established the field of chrononutrition. This is a field where understanding of basic mechanisms can have translational benefit.
In this one-day symposium, The Physiological Society have gathered together some of the leading researchers in the field of chrononutrition from the UK, Europe and the USA, to share their latest research from human studies and animal models, and from epidemiology to molecular mechanisms. The Physiological Society are pleased to highlight a plenary lecture to be given by Satchidananda Panda from the Salk Institute, USA, whose research on circadian rhythms and time restricted feeding has brought to prominence the importance of this field to human health.
