PROGRAMME

The programme is available here.

PURPOSE OF THE NUTRITECH SYMPOSIUM

If flexibility is so causally involved in health and disease, the quantification of all relevant aspects and mechanisms involved may be a unique biomarker approach. In fact, we have now demonstrated that loss in flexibility precedes loss in homeostasis, making “stress response biomarkers” more suitable for the quantification of early deviations from health than the classical homeostatic biomarkers.

This symposium exploited the concepts, mechanisms, technologies, quantification, consequences and interventions that shape, maintain, regain and optimise phenotypic flexibility and systems flexibility. In addition it also provides practical solutions to implement these approaches and/or to design healthy ageing strategies in nutrition and health research, in healthcare, and in food industry (product development and health claim substantiation).
