IHIF hosts delegation from Sweden

Earlier this week IHIF hosted a small delegation from the Skane Region of Sweden. This visit introduced us to the fascinating work being done at the Anti-Diabetic Food Center at Lund University. The delegation was led by Ulf Aberg with Invest in Skane and included Professor Inger Bjorck, head of the center and assistant managing director Dr. Maria Johansson.   The mission of the center is to initiate and perform high risk joint venture research projects and promote science based business activities related to the development of novel innovative food concepts and practices which reduce the risk for obesity, type 2 diabetes and other manifestations of the insulin resistance syndrome.  This visit marks the second time the Skane region has visited Indiana and we hope to visit with them again at BIO in Chicago.
