Welcome to the 11th International Conference on Polyphenols and Health


Dear Colleagues and Friends,


We are excited to welcome you to Boston, Massachusetts this Fall from Wednesday, October 16 to Saturday, October 19, 2024 to share in scientific discoveries, connect or reconnect with new and longtime collaborators across the globe, and impact future research on polyphenols and health! 


The conference venue is in the Back Bay area of Boston, within walking distance of many neighborhoods that exemplify all that Boston has to offer – centuries of history, diverse cultural offerings, food for your traditional New England and more varied tastes, shopping of every type, and more. The fall foliage should also be upon us in Boston and the surrounding areas of New England for those interested in venturing beyond the city.


Besides the splendid location, you will enjoy an outstanding scientific program with presentations from the world’s leading researchers on polyphenols and health. Plenary speakers will cover diverse topics including basic science, translational research, epidemiologic studies, and randomized clinical trials, all focused on the questions of mechanisms of effect and the scientific evidence required to consider polyphenols in various forms and foods for broader health recommendations. Submitted abstracts will be considered for oral presentations and interactive poster sessions to give you the chance to showcase your work and engage in conversations with other scientists. Topical debates are also planned. In addition, we will present plenty of opportunities for young scientists to present their work across several dedicated programming formats.  By the end of ICPH 2024, we hope everyone will have broadened and deepened their understanding of the past, present, and future of research in polyphenols and health.


We sincerely hope to see you and your colleagues in Boston for ICPH 2024!


Howard Sesso and JoAnn Manson, ICPH 2024 Co-Organizers
