Selenium 2006 will consist of oral and poster presentations in all areas of Selenium biology and medicine, ranging from genomics & RNA structure/function to human & animal nutrition and to cancer prevention, toxicology & environmental chemistry. The main oral presentation sessions will be held in the Memorial Union Theater, a large auditorium built in the Art Deco style in 1939, with seating for 1,300

An initial 30 invited speakers have agreed to present at Selenium 2006. We will select additional speakers based on submitted abstracts. The deadline for submission of abstracts is Tuesday, May 2, 2006. In addition and dependent on funding, we plan to partially support a small number of new investigators.

Scientific Sessions:

  • Selenoprotein Genomics
  • Se Incorporation into Selenoproteins
  • Characterization of Selenoproteins and their Function
  • Enzymes and Metabolites in Selenium Metabolism
  • Selenoprotein Knockout Models
  • Selenium - Virus Interactions
  • Human Selenium Metabolism and Requirements
  • Selenium and Cancer Chemoprevention
  • Selenium Metabolism and Speciation in Plants
  • Selenium in Domestic Animals
  • Bacterial Selenoenzymes and Unique Selenium Metabolism
  • Selenium in the Environment
