Cardiovascular Health and Dietary Components: From Molecular Modification to Sensory Behaviour
Food and nutrition are evident to be critical in development and treatment of cardiovascular diseases. Numbers of studies have confirmed the beneficial/harmful effect of dietary components in disease aetiology via pathological modification. Scholars and clinicians are interested in the various factors in the regulation of such dietary intake, and taste receptors and sensory genetics now draw the attention for new targets for healthy eating behaviour and disease treatment. Firstly, Prof. Philip C. Calder from University of Southampton, UK will present the findings from clinical trials of nutritional therapy with unsaturated fatty acid. The second speaker, Prof. Inkyung Baik from Kookmin University, Korea, will talk about how the various life style factors including dietary components influence on telomere and cardiovascular aging. Our third speaker, Prof. Emma Feeney from University College Dublin, Ireland, will introduce the modification role of taste receptor in dietary intake and cardiovascular aetiology. Our fourth speaker, Prof. Sung-Joon Lee from Korea University, Kore, will present the diverse biological functions of ectopic taste receptors. Finally, Prof. Jeong-Hwa Choi from Keimyung University will talk about the role of taste receptor in health behaviours and outcome with an epidemiological perspective.
