“MAGNESIUM IN HEALTH AND DISEASE”

THE XIV INTERNATIONAL MAGNESIUM SYMPOSIUM

Rome, June 23-24, 2016

NEWSLETTER – ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS – POST EVENT

More than 150 delegates from all over the world attended the XIV INTERNATIONAL MAGNESIUM SYMPOSIUM, which on Friday afternoon June 24 marked its final day.

It has been a two-day full-immersion meeting on “Magnesium in Health and Disease”, I believe we accomplished our goal to cover the major biomedical aspects of magnesium research with special emphasis in merging epidemiologic and clinical data with basic biological mechanisms. We hope you learned something and you enjoyed meeting with great experts. Magnesium is crucial in a wide array of pathophysiological conditions, and we believe we provided a background to implement its study and its beneficial effects in health and disease.

I would like to thank all the delegates for their active participation to this important meeting.

We received 38 abstracts, 13 oral communications, 25 posters.

Awards have been assigned to: 

SARA CASTIGLIONI

VALENTINA TRAPANI

NICOLA VERONESE

And to:

ALESSANDRA CAZZANIGA

SERGE HARDY

FRANCESCA LUONGO

VALENTINA PETITO

FRANCISCO RIOS

For BEST POSTERS

I would like to thank again also the companies for their active contribution: SANOFI, ACQUE MINERALI D’ITALIA, COUNCIL FOR RESPONSIBLE NUTRITION, DONAT, CEMON, FJ LIFESCIENCES, ORIEL, MGKVIS, GIOVANNI EDERLE, MV MEDICAL, ALMONDS LOMAN.

We were delighted that our social dinner at HORTI SALLUSTIANI gathered more than 120 people and once again, Roma had the opportunity to show its wonderful areas.
