The 6th INFOGEST Webinar on Food Digestion will be held on Wednesday, 3rd February at 2PM.

The theme of Wednesday’s webinar is “In silico models of digestion”, representing Working Group 6 of the INFOGEST network. Steven Le Feunteun of INRAE, France and a leader in WG6, will introduce the topic with a presentation on "In silico simulation of digestion – an overview". This will be followed by a presentation by Andrea Rivera del Rio, a PhD student from Wageningen University and Research, on "Modelling protein digestion of solid and liquid meals”. The Q and A will be moderated by Choi-Hong Lai, University of Greenwich and leader in WG6, and Dr André Brodkorb of Teagasc.
