The 12th International Symposium on Trace Elements in Man and Animals will be held at the University of Ulster, Coleraine, Northern Ireland in June 19-23, 2005. The theme for our meeting is: Trace Elements in Man and Animals, Scientific developments, Novel Applications and Progress into the 21st Century. Outstanding investigators are being invited to give presentations on all aspects of trace element research from cellular metabolism, to plant sciences, to human nutrition. We have included sessions and workshops that provide information regarding new approaches to study trace elements.

Conference Objectives
  • To highlight work at the cutting edge of trace element research by capturing recent progress on the functional role and metabolism of trace Elements, together with new developments in the understanding of the underlying molecular and cellular biology.
  • To establish a forum for the free exchange of ideas between workers investigating fundamental aspects of trace Elements, and workers whose role is the application of such findings in the fields of nutrition, human or veterinary medicine, agriculture, biology, ecology and protection of the environment.
Scientific Programme
  • Two keynote lectures and the first Underwood Award lecture (by Professor Janet King) will take place on the first afternoon.
  • A plenary session of two lectures will be held on each of the four mornings of the symposium. Invited speakers will be outstanding scientists from the international community.
  • Poster sessions are scheduled on two afternoons. We anticipate up to 300 posters. Awards for Best Poster Presentation will be presented to a number of students whose presentations are outstanding.
  • Four pairs of parallel breakout sessions. Each breakout session will feature two talks by invited speakers, followed by four shorter presentations of original research selected from the submitted abstracts.
  • The motion “Iron fortification is murder with a rusty knife” will be debated in an interactive session, with questions and votes from the floor.
  • Four parallel workshops on the last morning will provide a lively forum to address a variety of issues relevant to trace element research.
  • The Symposium will end with a third keynote lecture and the second Underwood Award lecture (by Professor Joseph Prohaska).
