The respirometry course – held at the “Institut für Ernährungsmedizin in Stuttgart-Hohenheim, Germany” – teaches participants how to measure metabolic rates in humans using whole room indirect calorimetry.
The course will e.g. cover functional requirements of calorimetry systems, system validation and data analysis. Participants will have access to a state-of-the-art room calorimetry for practical work.
Accommodation and meals in Stuttgart are not covered by registration fees. The course is limited to 10 attendants.
Directly following the 5th International Symposium on Energy and Protein Metabolism and Nutrition in Krakow, Poland from
September 12-15, 2016, Wageningen University, the Netherlands (WU), and the INRA, Rennes, FR will jointly organize a workshop on indirect calorimetry and selected applications. The course will be held on September 15-17, 2016 in Krakow.
The course is aimed at educating those (PhD students, technical staff, researchers) who are, or aim to use measurements of gaseous exchange (CO2, O2, CH4, etc) in their research program, and/or are setting up facilities in which those measures can be performed, either with or without climate control.
The registration fee is €350 for PhD students and €700 for other participants. It includes dinner on Thursday and lunch breaks on Friday and Saturday, lunches on Friday and Saturday and the book: Indirect Calorimetry – techniques, computations and applications, which will be used as course material. Lodging arrangements are your own responsibility.
The registration deadline has already passed. You may, however, contact email@example.com to inform yourself about the possibility to participate.
John Lighton, President and Chief Scientist of Sable Systems International will be giving a talk, “Design of Calorimeters – General principles, brief overview – emphasis on lab scale systems” during the course on Indirect Calorimetry in Krakow Poland on Friday, September 16th.

The respirometry course – held at the University of Florida, Gainesville, FL – teaches participants how to measure metabolic rates using indirect calorimetry. We will apply techniques for measuring O2 consumption, CO2 production and water vapour loss for insects and other small invertebrates. Participants can work with single animal and high through-put systems in both open-flow and stop-flow.
Accommodation in Gainesville is not covered by registration fees. The course is limited to 12 attendants.
The course teaches participants how to use indirect calorimetry in metabolic screening. We will apply techniques for measuring real-time O2 consumption, CO2 production and water vapor loss for laboratory rodents. Measurement systems also include food & water intake, body mass monitoring, wheel running and voluntary activity. Data analysis is a significant focus.
