The annual Carotenoid Research Interest Group (CARIG) conference was held in the Bayfr ont Hilton Hotel in San Diego, chaired by Dr Liz Johnson. As has been customary over the past 11 years, the keynote speech was the James Allen Olson Perspectives on Carotenoids Memorial Lecture. Dr Sherry Tanumihardjo of the University of Wisconsin-Madison, who worked for over 20 years with Prof Olson at Iowa State University, was the distinguished lecturer for the 11th Perspectives. Her topic was “Xanthophylls as Provitamin A Carotenoids,” which took in the biological onsiderations currently directed at disease prevention, as well as the context of nutritional adequacy of vitamin A in developing countries. The speech ran the gamut, from the bio-pathways for the production of β-cryptoxanthin as
a neglected provitamin A, to its importance in high-carotenoid maize varieties for vitamin A interventions in Africa.
