Thu, 2015-10-15
Paris, FRA

On October 15-16, 2015; ICAAS sponsored the 9th Amino Acid Assessment Workshop (AAAW). Similarly to all previous AAAWs, the 9th installation of the event was constructed and supervised by the ICAAS Scientific Academic Committee, currently made of Profs. Denny Bier (Huston), Luc Conober (Paris), M. Kadowaki (Niigata), Sid Morris (Pittsburgh) and R. Elango (Vancouver).

The event was organized at the “L’Hotel du Collectionneur” (Paris, France) and as many as 76 leading scientists participated. Day 1 morning session was focused on animal and human data relevant to the safety of the semi-essential amino acid arginine. Presentations and discussions were emphasizing the outcome of ICAAS-sponsored research projects and on the use of new data to determine the upper...

8th Amino Acid Assessment Workshop (AAAW) - 10 & 11 November 2011 - Washington DC

Washington DC, USA

The eighth in a series of Amino Acid Assessment Workshops (AAAWs) was organized in the Ritz-Carlton Hotel in Georgetown (Washington DC, USA) on November 10 and 11, 2011. Sixty-five academic, government and industry experts from 11 countries attended the meeting. The Workshop was designed to continue a dialogue among experts in amino acid nutrition, metabolism, cell and molecular biology, toxicology and regulation/policy with the objective of establishing a framework for assessing and predicting the consequences of differing levels of leucine and tryptophan intake(s) in humans under various conditions. This year’s Day 1...
