Classic and Field Line Course – Introduction to Animal Respirometry
Feb 24 – Feb 27 all-day
Classic and Field Line Course - Introduction to Animal Respirometry @ Las Vegas | Nevada | United States

This course teaches participants how to measure metabolic rates using indirect calorimetry. We will apply techniques for measuring real-time O2 consumption, CO2 produc­tion and water vapor loss for subjects ranging from small invertebrates to large mammals. Participants can work with single animal and high through-put systems in both open-flow and stop-flow.

Promethion Course – High-Throughput Respirometry for Metabolic Screening  @ Las Vegas, NV
Jun 16 – Jun 19 all-day
Promethion Course – High-Throughput Respirometry for Metabolic Screening  @ Las Vegas, NV

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.

Promethion Course – Room Calorimetry Specialization @ Universität Hohenheim
Sep 8 – Sep 9 all-day
Promethion Course – Room Calorimetry Specialization @ Universität Hohenheim | Stuttgart | Baden-Württemberg | Germany

 

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.

Indirect Calorimetry Course in Krakow, Poland @ Aleje Adama Mickiewicza 24/28
Sep 15 – Sep 17 all-day
Indirect Calorimetry Course in Krakow, Poland @ Aleje Adama Mickiewicza 24/28 | Kraków | Lesser Poland Voivodeship | Poland

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 yvonne.vanholland@wur.nl to inform yourself about the possibility to participate.
