BACKGROUND

Following the 1st Global Symposium held in Phoenix USA April 2008, the 2nd in Edinburgh October 2010 and the 3rd in Chicago USA September 2012, we are delighted to welcome this meeting back to the UK, 7th  – 10th  October 2014 in Liverpool, England.

The fundamental goals of this symposium are:

·         To share up-to-date information on the rapidly expanding topic of Ketogenic Dietary Therapies.

·         To define the important clinical and research questions that should be pursued in the future.

·         This symposium will provide a forum for extended discussions regarding practical, clinical implementation, surveillance of adverse effects and importantly, a critical look at basic cellular and molecular mechanisms that could account for the anticonvulsant and neuro-protective effects of all dietary treatments available.

WHO IS IT FOR

Paediatric Neurologists & Epileptologists, Adult Neurologists & Epileptologists, Oncologists, Research Scientists, Nurses, Dietitians and other allied health professionals.

Attendees will have the opportunity to share information and establish clinical and research collaborations.  This spirit of co-operation constitutes the core rationale for this international symposium.
