Webinar: Dietary Challenges and Metabolomics Analysis as Phenotyping Tools for the Identification of Metabotypes and Early Markers of Chronic Diseases, Link available

In this webinar, Prof. Jarlei Fiamoncini (Dept of Food and Experimental Nutrition, School of Pharmaceutical Sciences, University of São Paulo) 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.
