Medical Delta Café is THE Dutch event for doctors, researchers and entrepreneurs interested in innovations and the future of Life Sciences, Health & Technology. Each Café focuses on a different theme. Speakers discuss and present opportunities for research cooperation and/or product development. Throughout the event there will be plenty of opportunities to network, to have in depth discussions and…to start to collaborate!

Focus on Metabolomics – a Tool for Personalised Health?  

Is the future of healthcare simply personalised medicine and food? How are metabolomics used in biomedical research? Will metabolomics enable us to predict the potential health effects of certain food choices in a more precise way? In what way will metabolomics change the food industry and agriculture?

Prof. Dr. Cock van Duijn will show recent advances in metabolomics research and present about how metabolomics will revolutionise personal health and medicine. Caroline Duterloo presents about MetaboXL, workname for a Medical Delta initiative to make the newest technology in metabolomics available for industry and research. And Berry Kriesels, founder of Omnigen, will explain why he is interested to include metabolomics in the self-management services for personalised lifestyle and health offered by his company.
