TITLE: Dietary Challenges and Metabolomics Analysis as Phenotyping Tools for the Identification of Metabotypes and Early Markers of Chronic Diseases.
HOST: Prof. Jarlei Fiamoncini (Dept of Food and Experimental Nutrition, School of Pharmaceutical Sciences, University of São Paulo, BZ)

Space is limited and priority is given to ECN members on a first-come-first-served basis.

Webinar resumé.
In this webinar, we will talk about the application of dietary challenges combined with metabolomics analysis for the generation of data that allows the identification of individual post-prandial responses. In particular, we will discuss how multivariate statistics can be employed to reveal distinct human metabotypes and susceptibility to chronic diseases such as type 2 diabetes.

JarleiProf. Fiamoncini is a biologist working as an assistant professor in the Department of Food and Experimental Nutrition, School of Pharmaceutical Sciences, at the University of São Paulo. This role follows his PhD in Human Physiology (University of São Paulo) and post-doctoral experiences in Prof. Hannelore Daniel’s group at the Technical University of Munich and in Claudine Manach’s group at the French National Institute for Agricultural Research (INRA). With a background in targeted and untargeted metabolomics and an interest in the metabolism of bile acids, Prof. Fiamoncini’s research is now focused on understanding post-prandial metabolic adaptations and how these are affected by different meal components.

Prof. Fiamoncini is also a former NuGO ECN board representative and we are delighted to welcome him back to share his recent research experiences.
