The annual Carotenoid Research Interactive Group (CARIG) Conference was held in the Marriott Hotel in
New Orleans on Friday, April 17, 2009. The four-hour afternoon session was held a day before the official inauguration of Experimental Biology 2009. This represented the first year for CARIG in its new, formal status as a Research Interest Section (RIS) within the formal structure of the American Society of Nutrition (ASN). The conference attracted upwards of 60 eager and attentive professionals and trainees. The program, entitled Molecular Aspects of Carotenoid Metabolism, with a central theme surrounding the biology and function of the carotene monooxygenase (CMO) family of cleavage enzymes, was superbly crafted and moderated by this year’s organizers, Lewis P Rubin and Sherry Tanumihardjo.
