Specialisation Molecular Nutrition and Toxicology
Do you want to know what happens exactly in the body? What do fat cells do and how do they influence our health? Why are certain substances healthy or unhealthy?
Cells and DNA
The answers to these types of questions can be found by delving at the lowest levels: cells and DNA. You will learn to use techniques, at molecular and cellular levels, to discover the mechanism driving the relationship between food and health.
At toxicology, you will learn to research the possible poisonous effects of substances present in food. For instance, new ingredients in food products and additives, but also natural substances present in our food.
The relationship between food consumption, food and medicines can also be researched and through this research, you will find many new leads to improving our health.
