Title of abstract
Prof.Ian Madonald
The University of Nottingham Ian Macdonald is Professor of Metabolic Physiology at the University of Nottingham and Head of the School of Life Sciences in the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences. His research interests are concerned with the functional consequences of metabolic and nutritional disturbances in health and disease, with specific interests in obesity, diabetes, cardiovascular disease and exercise.  His recent work is focussed on the metabolic aspects of diabetes and obesity, including the effects of diet composition and weight loss, and the impact of dietary supplements on carbohydrate and lipid metabolism. Two major areas of interest relate to the use of MR imaging and spectroscopy for assessing alterations in metabolism and the influence of nutrients and metabolic disturbances on gene expression in adipose tissue and muscle. Current work in these areas relates to physical activity and inactivity (including immobilisation), obesity and diabetes. He has published over 330 peer-reviewed original research papers, together with reviews, book chapters and invited contributions.  In September 2013 he was elected as a Fellow of the International Union of Nutritional Sciences. He is currently joint Editor of the International Journal of Obesity, a member of the UK Scientific Advisory Committee on Nutrition (and Chaired the SACN Carbohydrates Working Group), a Fellow of the Society of Biology, a Registered Nutritionist and an Honorary Fellow of the Association for Nutrition.

Prof.Kumpei Tokuyama
University of Tsukuba Kumpei Tokuyama, Ph.D. is Professor in the Division of Sport Medicine, School of Comprehensive Human Science, University of Tsukuba. Dr. Tokuyama’s research program is primarily aimed at understanding the physiology of energy metabolism in athletes, non-athletes and subjects with obesity and diabetes. In 2003, he set-up the 2nd metabolic chamber in Japan, and improved its time resolution by adopting sensitive mass-spectrometer and developing a noise reduction algorithm. Time resolution of the metabolic chamber in University of Tsukuba is currently the best in the world. Using this setting, he has studied the effect of life style, such as breakfast skipping, late evening meal, exercise at various times of the day on 24-h fat oxidation. In 2015, he also joined to the International Institute of Integrative Sleep Medicine (IIIS) in University of Tsukuba as PI. Orexin symbolically has shown that control of sleep/wake is tightly related to the regulation of energy metabolism. Dr. Tokuyama of Exercise Nutrition Laboratory has collaborated with Sleep Medicine (led by Dr. Makoto Satoh) in the last 10 years. Using the high-resolution metabolic chamber, we are beginning to see detailed changes in energy metabolism during sleep in association with sleep stage and time after sleep onset. His research interests also include the effect of exercise, diet and sleeping environment (light and bedding) on sleep and sleeping metabolic rate.
