These conditions share complex underlying pathophysiology interacting with environmental, lifestyle, and dietary factors. It is widely recognized that poor diet quality contributes substantially to these conditions, but the mechanisms by which diet influences metabolic health are not well studied. Emerging tools and technologies, including metabolomics profiling, can help elucidate mechanisms underpinning the relationship between diet and metabolic disease. In addition, integrating metabolomics with other omics data is critical to understanding interindividual differences in the metabolic response to dietary interventions. Therefore, OMICs profiling in nutritional studies can elucidate the biological role of diet composition in chronic disease etiology and expand the evidence base of dietary guidelines in the general population. Moreover, a thorough understanding of the molecular links between diet and disease risk could pave the way for precision nutrition, where dietary advice and interventions are tailored to individuals based on their health status, lifestyle factors, social-cultural factors, and genetics and other molecular phenotypes. </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div>The goal of the Precision Nutrition Forum, 1<sup>st</sup> edition – Gothenburg​ is to bring together interdisciplinary expertise in nutritional epidemiology, high-throughput omics technologies (genomics, metabolomics, metagenomics, and proteomics), and data science and present the latest concepts and advances in precision nutrition research.

The event Design for Health will be held on September 21st in Scaniasalen at Chalmersplatsen to tighten collaboration between researchers and practitioners in this area.</p><div><br /></div> <div>Designers from various disciplines such as product design, service design, and user experience design have been involved in improving the healthcare system over the past decades. The current wave of digitalization and the persisting need for a more inclusive and sustainable healthcare system suggest an even more prevalent presence of design in healthcare. In addition, the recent pandemic revealed how the poor design of products, information and built environment negatively affected human beings including patients and healthcare professionals.  </div> <br /><div><img src="/SiteCollectionImages/Institutioner/IMS/Design%20and%20Human%20Factors/luke-chesser-rCOWMC8qf8A-unsplash_webb.jpg" alt="bild" class="chalmersPosition-FloatRight" style="margin:5px 20px;width:290px;height:194px" />In the event Design for Health, we will gather to see examples of how design can contribute to health, and to initiate a network by which we can start meaningful collaboration in this area. The event is open to everyone interested in relationship between design and health, including experts from industry, academia, and the public sector. It is jointly held by Division Design &amp; Human Factors at the Department of Industrial and Materials Science and Chalmers Health Engineering Area of Advance. </div> <div><br /></div> <div><h2 class="chalmersElement-H2">Registration</h2> <span></span><div>Register using following link by September 9th 2022:<p class="MsoNormal"><span lang="EN-US"><a href=""></a></span></p> <br /></div></div> <div> <h3 class="chalmersElement-H3"><span lang="EN-US">Schedule: </span></h3> <p class="MsoNormal"><span lang="EN-US" style="font-size:12pt;color:black">08:45 - 09:00 Reception</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span lang="EN-US" style="font-size:12pt;color:black">09:00 - 09:15 Intro</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span lang="EN-US" style="font-size:12pt;color:black">09:15 - 10:00 Design for health: examples from education</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span lang="EN-US" style="font-size:12pt;color:black">10:00 - 10:15 Coffee break</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span lang="EN-US" style="font-size:12pt;color:black">10:15 - 11:00 Design for health: examples from research</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span lang="EN-US" style="font-size:12pt;color:black">11:00 - 12:00 Networking activity</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span lang="EN-US" style="font-size:12pt;color:black">12:00 - 13:00 Lunch<br /></span></p> <span></span><span style="display:inline-block"></span><br /></div> Webinar – Metallic nanoalloys for next generation optical hydrogen sensors<p>Online Zoom.</p><p>​SAVE THE DATE: On October 5, it´s time for our online Tandem Webinar – Metallic nanoalloys for next generation optical hydrogen sensors.

Students, researchers, companies or the public sector - Welcome!</p><em>​</em><span style="background-color:initial"><em>The registration will open, and more info will be published in August.</em></span><div><br /></div> <div><strong>The Energy Area of Advance</strong> organizes not only energy research across Chalmers to connect research with the real world, but also works actively with finding platforms where our students can meet and co-operate with industry and the public sector. So, if your organization has a research problem for one of our students to solve, and you do not know where to begin or whom to contact, then you should be interested in our master thesis fair; a venue for exchanging ideas that are suitable for a master theses project. Collaboration with external organisation provides great values for Chalmers’s students, researchers, and to your organization. </div> <div> </div> <div><strong>At Chalmers, every master's programme</strong> is completed with a master's thesis work. The overall goal of the concluding degree project is to display knowledge and capability required for independent work as a Master degree in engineering. An opportunity to apply knowledge to the real world, especially, when collaborating with industry or the public sector. The master's thesis, which includes a public report and a public oral presentation, comprises 30 credits (corresponding 16 weeks of work) and is supervised by Chalmers researchers.  </div> <div> </div> <div><strong>Who should attend:</strong></div> <div>Any energy related company or the public sector that has a strong interest in engaging master thesis students are invited to present their organization and current/future project ideas. Chalmers industry strategic partners, industry collaborators connected to the competence centers and other Area of Advance are especially encouraged to participate. </div> <div> </div> <div><strong>Master students</strong> who are interested in working with an organization for the thesis are encouraged to participate. Chalmers researchers who are considering participating as supervisors are also welcome to attend.</div> <div><br /></div> Sustainable 2022 - Democracy in a Changing Climate!<p></p><p>​The sustainability week at Chalmers University of Technology and the University of Gothenburg is back!
