Bioavailability 2018

Understanding the bioavailability of micronutrients and bioactive compounds for improved public health

10-13 September 2018 | John Innes Conference Centre, Norwich, UK

Submit Your Abstract

This conference aims to provide an open forum to bring together researchers from various scientific communities to present the latest research and discuss common themes and challenges to understanding the bioavailability of micronutrients and bioactive compounds for improved public health. The role of the gut microbiota and factors affecting individual variation in the bioavailability of both nutrients and non-nutrients will be strong themes of the conference.

Celebrating 30 years of the Bioavailability series, the 2018 conference returns to Norwich, its inaugural home. We welcome academics, industry representatives and policy makers from the agri-food and food-diet-health sectors with an interest in understanding mechanisms of uptake, the role of the gut microbiota, biofortification and public health nutrition to attend.
