NuGO is an Association of Universities and Research Institutes focusing on the joint development of the research areas of molecular nutrition, personalised nutrition, nutrigenomics and nutritional systems biology
During the NuGOweek 2018 session 3 on Tuesday 4 September is on the Joint Programming Initiative ‘a Healthy Diet for a Healthy Life’ (JPI HDHL): The Food Biomarkers Alliance (FoodBALL). FoodBAll has is own final conference on 14 May 2018, Wageningen, The Netherlands. For more information and registration check: http://foodmetabolome.org/
During the NuGOweek 2018 a jointly activity from NuGO and APNNO (Asia-Pacific Nutrigenomics & Nutrigenetics Organisation) results in Session 7: "Epigenetic effects of micronutrients and their impact on cellular and mitochondrial metabolism".
APNNO will held its own bi-annual conference in the first week of December in Tokyo, Japan. see: http://dev.nugo.org/links/
PhD students and postdoctoral researchers interested in whole body metabolism and translatability from mouse to human.
The objective of the course is to provide information about topics such as:
– How does ambient temperature affect metabolism (human and mouse) and the outcome of nutritional studies?
– Measurements of energy metabolism.
– Use of indirect calorimetry for nutritional studies.
– Human and animal translational aspectsIn addition, the course provides an excellent opportunity for networking with other PhD students and early career researchers and for developing skills in undertaking collaborative research.
3 PhD positions are available at Agroscope-CH, one in collaboration with Wageningen University & Research-NL and two positions together with the University of Bern-CH.
1 PhD position in Nutrigenomics and Lipid Metabolism at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, Department of Food Sciences and Human Nutrition
