Successful seminar at Solstrand
February 13-14 2020, the second Mohn Nutrition Research Lab seminar was held.
The seminar was held at the wonderful Solstrand hotel. Stener Kvinnsland, chair of the board of the Trond Mohn Foundation, opened the seminar with an inspirational speech and the wise words: “The only thing you can’t miss in life… food”. Afterwards, professor Grethe S. Tell guided us through the impressive Hordaland Health Study (HUSK), which has been going on for almost 30(!) years. Professor Reijo Laaksonen travelled all the way from Finland to hold an exciting presentation on lipids and cardiovascular disease, where he emphasized the importance of ceramides. Several PhD candidates and researchers from UiB presented their ongoing work in the fields of nutritional epidemiology, malnutrition, dietary quality and obesity. Finally, is statistical significance that significant? Postdoc Vegard Lysne led an eye-opening workshop on the use and misuse of p-values in research.
The organizers would like to thank everyone for their contribution, and are looking forward to seeing you at the next Mohn Nutrition Research Lab seminar!
