The theme of NuGOweek 2016 will be: “Phenotypes and prevention – the interplay of genes, life-style factors and gut environment”.
The venue of the 13th NuGOweek will be the historical “Festsalen” of the University of Copenhagen in the inner city of Copenhagen.

PhD pre-NuGOweek course
For the third time a PhD pre-NuGOweek course will be organised. The title will be “Use of large scale data in dietary intervention studies”. The course will start on Saturday September 3rd at the end of the afternoon and will end on Monday afternoon before the start of the NuGOweek.
On Monday September 5th an Enpadasi Workshop will be organised. On Thursday and/or Friday a FOODBALL workshop will be organised
NuGo wishes to establish an Early Career Network (ECN) which aims to provide a forum for nutrigenomics researchers at the start of their career.
The mission of this network will be to establish a sense of community and engagement amongst early-career researchers. The network is open to any early-career scientists who are either currently conducting higher degrees (MSc, PhD etc) or are within 7 years of completing such degrees, and are actively engaged in the field of nutrigenomics.
2 Positions to join the commitee
To establish this network we are establishing an Early Career Network Committee and are currently asking for members to join this committee. We currently have 4 members and are seeking 2 more.
Application and deadline
If you wish to become a committee member please email a 2 pg CV and cover letter to firstname.lastname@example.org before 15th February 2016.
