2nd TRAINING SCHOOL on “Use of nutrigenetics & nutri(epi)genomics in nutrition research”

 “Use of nutrigenetics & nutri(epi)genomics in nutrition research”



This Training School will help in promoting new research in the field of the Action using innovative approaches. This training focused on the Use of Nutrigenetics and Nutri(Epi)genomics in Nutrition Research will combine open webinars for a large audience and a practical part dedicated to training a limited number of early-stage researchers (ESR) and experienced researchers (ER) of the Action.



This 2-steps Training School* on "Nutrigenetics and Nutri(Epi)genomics " will include:

       - PART 1, webinars ( September 2017) : introductory courses on nutrigenetics and nutri(epi)genomics. These webinars are opened for all interested partners.

Each webinar will have a duration of about 45 minutes. The tentative list of trainers/topics is being prepared.

       - PART 2 (on place in Thessaloniki, 20-22 September, 2017): include the participation to the 3rd Scientific Workshop of the Action focused on the Topic of the TS (1 day) + a practical course (1.5-days). This part is for 20-25 trainees interested to develop research with these approaches in their lab. 

*An electronic survey has been sent to all the POSITIVE partners to identify the needs and expectations of POSITIVe partners in order to establish the program and select the trainees who will participate to the practical courses.


Organizing Committee:

Dr. Anne-Marie Minihiane

Dr. Baukje de Roos

Dr. Dragan Milenkovic

Dr. Wim Van den Berghe
