Building on the success of the Diet and Health symposium in 2016, King’s Summer Programmes is arranging a Summer Symposium on Healthspan and Wellness, taking place on Tuesday 13 and Wednesday 14 June 2017, in partnership with Unilever R&D Bangalore.

Speaking about the symposium, King’s College London convenor Dr Richard Siow says, “The symposium has been developed through a research collaboration between King’s College London, and Unilever, the global-leading consumer goods company with world-class industrial research facilities in India, the UK, the Netherlands, the USA and China. King’s has a long and distinguished pioneering tradition in health and nutrition-related research.”

This symposium will enable participants to appreciate the molecular, biochemical and physiological basis of healthy ageing through academic and industrial research insights to better define lifestyles for maintaining healthy ageing in different populations. The unique masterclass format provides an opportunity for academic experts, early career investigators, health professionals and industrial research scientists to share ideas and develop unique insights. Discussion of up-to-date topics informed by recent experimental scientific research, will enable participants to consider both the biological processes and the social impact for underlying local and global issues in healthspan and wellness.

During the two-day symposium, there will be a number of talks taking place around the subjects of healthspan and wellness. You can find a draft timetable of the programme on this webpage. Dr Siow and Professor Wolfgang Maret from King’s College London, along with keynote speakers namely Professor Uptal Tatu from the Indian Institute of Science in Bangalore, Dr Colin Jamora from the National Centre for Biological Sciences in Bangalore and scientists from Unilever R&D Bangalore, have a wealth of research expertise in the field of healthspan and wellness which will provide participants with unique insights in these fields.

Amy Kanagaratnam, a post-graduate student who attended last year’s symposium says, “I would definitely recommend this symposium to future students, it is a great experience and networking has allowed me to identify future job opportunities that may be available in a well-known company such as Unilever.”

If you are interested in attending the symposium, you have until Friday 9 June 2017 to register. The fee for the two-day symposium is £86 (approximately Rs. 7,000) and you can register here.
