Programme
The Saga of the Gut
The 7th Nutrition Winter School
23.- 27.1.2023, Saariselkä, Lapland, Finland
Scientific program

The goal of the Nutrition Winter School is to gather talented early-career researchers and experienced scientists from various backgrounds to enjoy scientific lectures and fruitful discussions under the magical atmosphere of Lapland. This can help the young investigators to find new avenues in their research area.

The program is designed to cover the topics from different perspectives: from basic science to the latest advances in the field of gut health, from a clinical, experimental and molecular biological point-of-view.

Changes to the program are possible.
