Pancosma will once again sponsor the American Society of Animal Science (ASAS) annual meeting from 8-12 July 2017, Baltimore, MD, USA.
Pancosma is proud to host the symposium “Comparative Gut Physiology Symposium: All About Appetitie Regulation” on the 10th of July.
"Significant progress has been made in the last decade in elucidating the importance of appetite regulation in human health as well as livestock production. The underlying mechanisms include but not limit to the neuronal and endocrine regulation of gut function and responses and interactions with the central nervous system. This symposium will highlight again the neuroendocrine system, "Mini-Brain within the Gut", and the importance of appetite regulation in livestock industry. The comparative approach helps researchers in this area and students by emphasizing the biological commonalities between species and sharing of concepts and methodology".
