The next INFOGEST Webinar on Food Digestion will take place on the 1st September 2021, in partnership with the UNGAP Cost Action. The theme of the webinar is the “Food-Drug Interface and Digestion” and will feature presentations from Michael Grimm from the University of Greifswald, Germany and Bart Hens from Pfizer, United Kingdom. The webinar will be hosted by André Brodkorb of Teagasc Moorepark and moderated by Didier DuPont of INRAE, France and Mirko Koziolek of Abbvie, Germany.
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. The Infogest Webinar Series on Food Digestion began in September 2020 and will continue in the lead up to the next International Conference on Food Digestion 3-5 May 2022 in Cork, Ireland .
The European Network on Understanding Gastrointestinal Absorption-related Processes (UNGAP) is a multidisciplinary network of scientists aiming to advance the field of intestinal drug absorption by focusing on four major challenges:
(i) intestinal absorption in specific patient populations,
(ii) regional differences along the gastrointestinal tract,
(iii) the intraluminal behaviour of advanced formulations, and
(iv) the food-drug interface.
