Beschrijving: I am Mike Moore from the European Center for Environmental Human health, which is part of the Peninsula Medical School in England and also from Plymouth Marine Laboratory. I am here today as the invited keynote speaker talking about “Oceans and Human Health”.
In this capacity I am the chairman of a working group on “Oceans and Human Health” for the European Science Foundation’s Marine Board. They have tasked us with producing a position paper which will include recommendation to the European Union’s Science directorate on the development of a future program on “Oceans and Human Health”.
I was very impressed with the talks I heard - very high standard - and also with the poster presentations. It is very good to see the wide range of activities the people are engaged in, very many of them involved in interdisciplinary research. Many of them also are involved in aspects that are potentially important contributors to the area in which I and my colleagues are concerned with; in other words to the marine environment and human health. Both the benefits that comes from the marine environment like food as fish and other seafood or the health benefits of living near the marine environment, … As well as the potential threats like pollution by chemicals, and harmful organisms such as bacteria and viruses. Many of today’s talks were related to this. Also there was one in particular that was looking at networking processes, dealing with the application of social networks to ecosystems. This is exactly the sort of thing that needs to be developed in the area of science that I am involved in.
Overall, I had a great day! I find the science fascinating and the enthusiasm of the young scientists that I was talking to has been terrific. I am taking great pleasure in being here and having been invited.
