What is Nutrition Winter School 2023?

The organizers of the Nutrition Winter School have set themselves the goal of bringing together the most talented scientists in the early stages of their careers and experienced educators from different backgrounds to exchange ideas and differing points of view. During NWS2023, numerous lectures and scientific sessions will inspire young scientists to do new research projects.

The program is designed to touch on intestinal health from different sides. The latest developments in the field of nutrition – from a molecular, experimental, and clinical point of view – will be presented. During the lectures, participants will learn how nutrients are absorbed and transported in the gastrointestinal tract, how the microbiome is formed, and whether the gut affects our immune and neurological systems. Scientists will also discuss the latest diagnostic advances that may already have clinical applications and consider the role of genes in healthy gut function. The whole program for the Nutrition Winter School 2023 you can find here.

During NWS2023, participants will have the opportunity to exchange views with world-renowned experts. Sessions will feature speakers such as: Prof. Magnus Simren from University of Gothenburg; Prof. Michael Müller from University of East Anglia; Prof. Michael Schemann from Technical University of Münich and many more.

NWS2023 is a unique opportunity for any scientist who wants to improve their competence in the field of nutritional sciences, and at the same time spend time in an extraordinary, picturesque place. For all willing participants registration is still open! Registration fees are 750 € (until 15.10.2022) and 850 € (last call, valid until 9.12.2022). The registration fee includes the right to attend lectures, workshops, seminar material, social programs, lunches, coffee, and dinners. The fee does not include breakfast, travel, or accommodation.
