Alltech’s 30th Symposium Asks “What If” We Held the Keys to Our Own Health?
[LEXINGTON, Ky.] – What if we could detect major diseases in the womb to prevent further progression? In the future, could a healthy lifestyle be all the doctor orders for disease prevention? What if Alzheimer’s disease and adult-onset diabetes were just different arms of the same disease? These and other life-changing questions will be posed at Alltech’s Life Sciences session at “What If,” the 30th Annual Alltech International Symposium in downtown Lexington, Kentucky, USA, from May 18-21.
“Many of the world’s deadliest diseases could be detected in time to prevent a patient from suffering any pain, to reduce our dependency on the emergency room and in turn remove a lot of distress in healthcare systems around the world,” said Dr. Ronan Power, vice president of Alltech Life Sciences.
With a new format in 2014, the popular annual event will explore the question of “What If” in sessions focusing on Crop Science, Life Sciences, Africa, Business and Technology, Modern Farming, and The Algae Opportunity.
Some of today’s hottest topics in healthcare, such as finding a cure for Alzheimer’s disease and controlling the health of an unborn child will be discussed during the Life Sciences session chaired by Dr. Karl Dawson, vice president and chief scientific officer of research at Alltech.
The Life Sciences Session will examine queries such as:
- What if a pin-prick test could diagnose major diseases in a matter of seconds?
- What are the future applications of microRNA technology?
- What if we could control the silent killer within our body – inflammation?
- What if we found the cure to Alzheimer’s disease and diabetes?
