37th National Nutrient Databank Conference
Emerging Researcher Needs and Applications of Food and Nutrient Databases
19 April 2013, Boston, MA
The events of the past week in Boston were tragic, dramatic, and very emotional. Thankfully, the suspects were successfully apprehended and our hearts go out to the citizens of Boston and the surrounding area.
Our 37th National Nutrient Databank Conference (NNDC) was severely impacted by these events as there was a “lock-down” for the city of Boston on Friday, and the Tufts Jean Mayer Human Nutrition Research Center was closed. We apologize for the unavoidable cancellation of the meeting and the inconvenience it may have caused you.
We deeply regret not coming together as a nutrition community last Friday to see our friends and colleagues and enjoy the wonderful program our presenters offered. However a number of our speakers and poster presenters have graciously made their presentations available.
