Infogest Webinar Series on Food Digestion
INFOGEST is an international network with the aim of Sharing Information on the Digestion of Food. INFOGEST was created under a cost Action [FA1005] and has evolved into an open network of scientists from both academia and industry from over 45 countries. The aim of the network is to improve the current scientific knowledge on how food is disintegrated during oral, gastric and intestinal digestion.
For more information on the INFOGEST network visit https://www.cost-infogest.eu/.
The INFOGEST webinar series is held on the first Wednesday of each month at 2PM (Dublin). The series will resume in February 2021.
