The course is aimed at PhD students, post-docs and early career researchers in the food and health areas. The attendants should have basic knowledge of food science and technology and nutrition.
The course provides the essential skills for understanding the relationship between food and health and nutrition as well as updated knowledge on the design of food systems for efficient nutrient delivery and gut microbiota modulation. The course brings together experts, internationally recognized for their contribution to the advance in knowledge in the fields of food epidemiology, pathophysiology and nutrition, food technology and food microbiology.
