Call for Abstracts: Why is healthy food healthy?


Innovative bioanalytics in food and in humans

Facing our ageing society healthy food is becoming a central issue. However, our daily habits often bar the way to healthy nutrition. Novel food is expected to encourage healthy diet and to prevent diseases. But can we quantify healthy effects of food and examine how its versatile ingredients are metabolized? In order to address these questions, foods, as well as humans have to be examined. This requires constantly new insights and developments in the area of nutrition science, food analysis and in vitro diagnostics.

Do you research in these areas or are you interested in driving these topics forward? We would like to cordially invite you to take a closer look at technological approaches in bioanalysis of foods and humans with us and to discuss possible synergies of the different disciplines.

The event takes place on Tuesday, December 5th, 2017, 9 a.m. - 4p.m. at DIfE German Institute of Human Nutrition Potsdam-Rehbruecke
