About the conference

Welcome to the 11th International Conference on Homocysteine and One Carbon Metabolism

Dear Colleague

It is a great pleasure for the ICHOCM Executive board and the local organizing committee to invite you to participate in the 11th International Conference on Homocysteine and One Carbon Metabolism at Aarhus University, Aarhus, Denmark, from 14.-18. May, 2017. 

The scientific program will cover the fields of research related to homocysteine and one-carbon metabolism and include leading researchers from around the globe as well as young promising scientists. The topic of the conferences is “Taking science to the next level – challenging paradigms and conventions”, and many internationally experts have accepted our invitation to give lectures. We encourage speakers to think about the conventions and paradigms in the expert fields, and consider whether these should be revisited and challenged.

We want to give the participants the chance of learning the newest and best within our scientific field. The conference will arrange chaired plenary and parallel oral sessions as well as poster sessions to cover the disciplines of biochemistry, genetics and epigenetics, metabolism, nutrition, experimental and clinical medicine and epidemiology and public health. Prices for best oral and poster performance will be granted. We hope that you will enrich the conference by participating and sharing with us your latest knowledge and experiences, thereby contributing to a rewarding conference.

The beautiful Aarhus University Campus will provide the setting for the conference where new and old friends hopefully will create a lively atmosphere that will inspire all the participants. Ideally situated in its bay, fringed by beached, forests and lush scenery, yet bustling with life, Aarhus offers an inspiring setting for the conference.

The website will be continuously updated with the newest information on the scientific and social programme, registration deadlines and abstract submission.

We look forward to welcoming you to Aarhus.

Yours sincerely

The local organizing committee
