The 2014 CARIG Conference was held in San Diego on Saturday, April 25, as part of Experimental Biology 2014. It was co-chaired by Dr Earl Harrison of Ohio State University and Dr Loredana Quadro of Rutgers University. The keynote lecture was the James Allen Olsen Memorial Lecture “Perspectives on Carotenoids”, as it has been since 2002 (with the exception of 2013). The unfortunate circumstances in Boston, Massachusetts, precluded the speaker fr om getting to the meeting venue last year; so the 2013 cheduled awardee, Dr Elizabeth J Johnson, of Tuft s University, was fi nally able to present the planned 2013 lecture, which was entitled “Emerging science on lutein in the brain.” The fu ll lecture is published elsewhere in this issue of Sight and Life.
