Elsevier Plans New Edition on Vitamin D Featuring Vitamin D Workshop eSymposia Speakers

Vitamin D, a critical player in bone health, is now emerging as an important player in many other physiological and disease processes. With a recent explosion in knowledge, we now know vitamin D to play important roles in immunity, susceptibility to infections disease, and even cancer development.

Given this ever-expanding body of knowledge, Elsevier is coming out with a new volume on Vitamin D to encompass these new discoveries and research directions. The new edition will cover everything from new tools and technologies enabling in depth studies of vitamin D, to clinical trials exploring vitamin D as treatment across wide range of ailments. They will draw heavily from the expertise represented at the upcoming Vitamin D Workshop eSymposia, which features many of the contributing authors as speakers.

Check out the Keypoint Blog for an exclusive KSQA interview with Dr. Martin Hewison, the editor-in-chief of the new Vitamin D edition, for a sneak peek into the new book and an overview of the current state of the field.
