Gatorade Sports Science Institute’s Sports Nutrition Preconference — Recent Advances in Sports Nutrition: Re-Visiting the Basics
Tuesday, May 29, 11:30 a.m. – 3:30 p.m.

As the boundaries of sports science are pushed, including sports nutrition, it is equally important to revisit the basics: both to understand recent advances to inform future breakthroughs, but also to reground us in the fundamentals. These sessions will do just that — take a fresh look at advances and recent discoveries related to hydration, carbohydrate and protein, and provide ideas and examples on their application in sport.

Danone Nutricia Research Preconference - Hydration for Health Academy: Historical perspectives and emerging evidence of the importance of hydration beyond performance
Tuesday, May 29, 4:00 – 7:00 p.m.

Interest in hydration science, extending beyond performance implications, has grown over the past decade. Today, the field of hydration science includes topics around water and fluid intake habits, occupational health and safety, kidney health and the long-term implications of chronic water-saving. Sponsored by Danone Nutricia Research Research, this preconference will cover:
  • A historical perspective on the origins of hydration research, its evolution to cover questions around hydration in daily life, and accurate assessment of water and fluid intake;
  • Dehydration mechanisms and impact from three health perspectives: Mesoamerican Nephropathy, a renal disease resulting from recurrent heat stress, intense physical activity at work and repeated cycles of dehydration; dehydration associated with exercise and heat stress linked to oxidative stress and DNA damage; and exercise and cardiac output at high intensity linked to renal injury.
  • Lawrence Armstrong Ph.D., FACSM, University of Connecticut, USA
  • Erica Perrier, Ph.D., C.S.C.S., Danone Nutricia Research, France
  • Isabelle Guelinckx, Ph.D., R.D., Danone Nutricia Research, France
