The goal of NutriTech is to quantify the effect of diet on "phenotypic flexibility". Phenotypic flexibility extends on metabolic flexibility (the capacity to adapt fuel oxidation to fuel availability) and includes all underlying mechanisms and physiological processes of adaptation when homeostasis is challenged. Methods will in the first instance be evaluated within a human intervention study, and the resulting optimal methods will be validated in a number of existing cohorts against established endpoints.
In doing so, we evaluate the use of cutting-edge analytical technologies and methods to study the diet-health relationship and critically assess their usefulness for the future of nutrition research and human well-being. Technologies include genomics, transcriptomics, proteomics, metabolomics, laser scanning cytometry, NMR based lipoprotein profiling and advanced imaging by MRI/MRS.
NutriTech is a consortium of 23 Partners including 6 non-EU groups .Together, we will disseminate the harmonised and integrated technologies on a global scale and by providing an integrated and standardised data storage and evaluation platform.
The impact of NutriTech will be multifold and exploitation is crucial as major breakthroughs from our technology and research are expected. Overall, NutriTech will lay the foundations for successful integration of emerging technologies intro nutrition research.
MoBioFood Research Group attended to the seminar sessions on "THE HUMAN MICROBIOME: PRESENT STATUS AND FUTURE PROSPECTS"
The invited talks and open debates stimulated the discussion and provided thoughts for future areas of research. The more recent hypotheses and theories regarding the complex human-microbiome relationship and how it may be modulated for improving health and well-being were discussed.
