2nd International Symposium on Energy and Protein Metabolism and Nutrition (ISEP)

9-13 September 2007, Vichy, France


The Symposium was oriented towards livestock science but also addresses general aspects of protein and energy metabolism as applied to Farm Animals or Biomedical Science.

The Scientific Committee set out three objectives for the 2007 Symposium.

to develop a platform where widely different (i.e. from fundamental to integrative) approaches to and concepts of nutrition can be discussed, which may eventually be integrated into systems of nutritional recommendations. The newest research techniques and methods will thus be addressed and scientists/groups will demonstrate outcomes from their work to achieve 'integration'.

to encourage the comparison of research strategies developed in different species to address similar scientific issues.

to organise an open and collegial Symposium based on a workshop spirit, in order to stimulate interactions between scientists actively working on energy and protein nutrient metabolism and nutrition.
