Analysis. Is it or not well justified the recommended intakes of folates (USDA values)? Quiz.
Course. The roles of genetic structure in modulating the metabolic effects of nutrients. Consequences upon health and disease.
Analysis. High plasma homocysteine. Defining which nutrigenetic elements are needed to establish a nutritional intervention. Pitfalls. Quiz.

Analysis. How should a nutrigenetic test look like in order to consider it useful to my practice? Quiz.
Attendance certificates will be handed at the end of the course.
About the speaker
Internationally recognized expert in nutrigenetics, nutrigenomics and nutritional epigenetics. Between 2008 and 2015, having his own laboratory at The Nutrition Research Institute (UNC Chapel Hill), Dr. Niculescu focused on the relationship between nutrients (such as choline, fatty acids, polyphenols, etc) and the genetic and epigenetic backgrounds, as well as on the impact of nutrition upon epigenetic transgenerational inheritance.
In 2015 Dr. Niculescu founded the startup company Advanced Nutrigenomics, where he continues to develop nutrigenetic and epigenetic tools and products.
In 2016 he became the principal investigator for the NUTRIGEN project at UMF Timisoara, a 2 M euro grant awarded with EU funds by the Romanian Government.
During collaboration with Abbvie & medical specialists, she implements innovative medical solutions. Expert in antiviral products, helped people affected by chronic diseases. The nutrition knowledge gained working for Abbott Nutrition has been very well matched with the nutrigenetic knowledge.
