The theme of this year’s NUTRIM symposium is ‘safe today, safer tomorrow’.
In this symposium, we will highlight current advances in knowledge that have the potential of making a safer future. However, we should keep in mind that safer is not the same as safe!
Online registration Nutrim Symposium 17 November 2021
Research at NUTRIM is about investigating new avenues of knowledge, but this also implies that there is an unavoidable ‘unknown’. The impact of this ‘unknown’ on human health and safety has become particularly clear as the Covid19 pandemic continues to unfold; researchers tried to predict the future on basis of an educated guess, but often failed. It is therefore necessary to continue unraveling the ‘unknown’ and translate the new knowledge into practice to make our society safer by changing life styles and reduce dangerous exposures. However, some level of uncertainty will always remain.
As a result, scientific research on complex biological pathways continues to be the corner stone of improving our health. Coupled with a vast amount of personal data available today, research creates an opportunity to more individually assess someone’s risk and to prevent disease.
Please keep an eye on our Symposium website for more information about the venue and program details.

NUTRIM aims to contribute to health maintenance and personalised medicine by unraveling lifestyle and disease-induced derangements in metabolism and by developing targeted nutritional, exercise and drug interventions. This is facilitated by a state of the art research infrastructure and close interaction between scientists, clinicians, master and PhD students.
