The Personalized Nutrition Revolution

Prof. Dr. Theo de Kok (Full Professor Population-based Toxicogenomics)
Theo de Kok is a Toxicologist who is investigating the impact of human exposures to health and disease. He is aiming to improve our understanding of how natural ingredients in the diet may contribute to the prevention of chronic diseases and how we can apply this knowledge to improve food products ultimately leading to the reduction of the overall burden of disease. In his talk he will explain how new technologies in biomedical research can help us to explain why some people respond differently to dietary ingredients than others. Would it be possible to predict what foods would be best for you? During the presentation you will find out how personalized nutrition will revolutionize the way we look at our diet.

The MiBlend study: Tailoring Food for Health

Dr. Simone van Breda (Assistant Professor at the Department of Toxicogenomics)
Dr. Simone van Breda is a nutritional toxicologist and has worked for over 20 years in nutrition research. Her main aim is to unravel the complex relationship between nutritional exposure, disease prevention and health promotion with an emphasis on the impact of personalized characteristics such as age, sex, and genetic makeup. In this presentation, a sneak preview will be given in the results of the recently finalized MiBlend study, which investigated the effect of different fruit and vegetable mixtures on prevention of cancer and cardiovascular risk, in subgroups of humans with different genetic backgrounds.
