SCUOLE – WORKSHOPS
4-8 September, 2017
Towards a bio-based economy: science, innovation, economics, education
well as societal issues.
A new cross-sector expertise is therefore required. This summer school aims at providing a broad overview of the mentioned issues and will be held by national and international speakers, both from academia and from industry. At least one visit to a company involved in the production of bio-based compounds will be included in the school’s schedule. Because of its inter-disciplinarity, the program welcomes participants with different backgrounds. Participants should be aware that a basic knowledge about the scientific basis of biotechnology is required and can ask organizers for advice.
Networking and discussion among students and lecturers will be encouraged and fostered throughout the duration of the school, with social event and a poster session.

IUBMB Advanced School – A molecular view of the food-health relationship
Way too often, the various classes of bioactive components in food are considered as “drugs”, and studied as isolated systems also in their interactions with the macrobiota. This advanced course aims at framing the health effects of nutrients in a holistic way, by considering the molecular relationships that occur among food components when they are processed, eaten, and come in contact with the human microbiota. Attention will also be paid to specific metabolic and/or behavioral disorders and to food intolerances. The course will address the molecular drivers of the food-health relationships, and outline the molecular basis of possible interventions when required and appropriate.
Target: The advanced school is primarily aimed at young scientists (PhD students, post-docs, junior faculty) active in the fields of biochemistry, nutrition, food science, and related disciplines.
