Dynamic in vitro digestion models

Event Time 1pm - 5pm
Venue Online
On 7th April, the INFOGEST and UNGAP research networks will host an online workshop on “Dynamic in vitro digestion models”.

The workshop is aimed at researchers and industry in the food and pharmaceutical sectors and will feature 11 an international programme of speakers (see below). The webinar will be hosted by Dr André Brdodkorb (Teagasc), Dr Didier Dupont (Inrae, France) and Professor Patrick Augustijns (University of Leuven, Belgium).

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 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.

The webinar will be live-streamed simultaneously on the Infogest YouTube channel
