Professor YIN Yulong won the Prize of Asia-Pacific Nutrition Award
The 14th International Symposium on Digestive Physiology of Pigs(DPP) was held in Brisbane (Australia) between the 21st and the 24th of August 2018 (DPP2018).
It attracted over 500 attendees from Asia, Europe, and North and South America. The scientific framework of the program centered around the digestive system, and focused on specific aspects, such as the emerging areas of the microbiota and the nutrient chemosensory mechanisms in the pig gastrointestinal tract.
Dr. YIN Yulong, the Chinese Academy of Engineering, a professor in Institute of Subtropical Agriculture (ISA) of Chinese Academy of Sciences, won the prize of Asia-Pacific Nutrition Award (APNA 2018), and gave a keynote lecture at the open ceremony of DPP 2018.
DPP is recognized as the definitive international scientific forum on digestive physiology of pigs. In particular, DPP 2018 targeted the latest advances in the field of digestive physiology, which will illustrate the future research trends.
The first time of DPP was hold 42 years ago in Aberdeen in England. Professor YIN Yulong is the first scientist from China, who won the APNA award.
