  • Vitamin D: Beyond Bone

    Friday, September 21, 2012 | 8:00 AM - 7:00 PM
    The New York Academy of Sciences

    Presented by the Abbott Nutrition Health Institute, the New York Academy of Sciences, and The Sackler Institute for Nutrition Science

    Over the past decade, researchers have produced data strongly suggesting that vitamin D and its metabolites contribute to a host of biological processes beyond the control of calcium and bone metabolism. This hypothesis is supported by the fact that the vitamin D receptor is expressed on a variety of cell types including lymphocytes, colonic cells, hepatocytes, and myocytes, including cardiac myocytes.

    This 1-day conference will explore recent epidemiological data and the molecular mechanisms of action known to underlie the effects of vitamin D on pregnancy, lactation, and immune, metabolic, muscle, and cardiovascular function. Participants will also explore recent changes to vitamin D dietary guidelines, as well as critical next steps in vitamin D research that will aid the translation of basic research and epidemiological data into public health strategies that support the health and well-being of infants, adults, and the aging population.
