Scientific breakthroughs in biomarkers are changing the field of personalized medicine and diagnosis. In the field of nutrition, biomarkers have applications both for assessment and screening of nutritional status as well as for diagnosis of deficiencies and risk factors.
This conference is aimed at exploring frontiers of research and development in this field, with topics such as innovative use of plasma amino acid profiles for screening for moderate malnutrition, as well as biomarkers of prediabetes, and the emerging field of sarcopenia. An afternoon panel session will examine how these results may translate into interpretable indicators and applicable recommendations. The targeted audience is scientists working on biomarkers and nutrition research and their application in both preventive and curative medicine, as well as health and nutrition practitioners dealing with nutritional deficiencies and risk factors in their patient populations.
