Postgraduate course on Nutriscience
Wageningen, The Netherlands
Monday 19 June 2017 - Friday 23 June 2017


Nutritional science is a rapidly changing field, with an increasing need for a multidisciplinary approach. It draws upon biology, food technology, epidemiology and psychology to answer a wide range of questions related to nutrition and human health. This covers questions like: How do dietary patterns influence health and well-being of individuals and populations? What are the physiological responses of the human body to diet? Through which biological pathways can nutrients affect metabolism? What are the determinants of eating behaviour? The "toolbox" of nutritional science for studying these questions has expanded in the past decade. The complexity of the diet and its relation to human health calls for a new generation of nutritionists who are able to integrate the knowledge from different areas in nutrition research. After following this course research professionals will better able to approach their research in a multi-faceted way and put their findings in a broader context.

Target group

The course is aimed at research professionals (PhD level) who are at the start of their career in nutritional science, or other scientists who want to become familiar with the broad field of nutritional research. Participants should have a background in biology, medicine, psychology, food science, or other life sciences and should have basic knowledge of human biology, biochemistry and statistics.
