Personalized Nutrition in aging society: redox control of major age-related diseases

MC Chair: Mustapha Cherkaoui
MC Vice Chair: Agnieszka Bartoszek 

The importance of a healthy ageing process becomes apparent when considering that (a) the Generation 50+ (G50+) already has a share in population of around one third across Europe, with obvious regional variations, (b) this share is likely to increase further in the future, and (c) vitality at older age is not only an important measure of quality of life but also key to participation and productivity. The theme “nutrition and ageing” has many different aspects and poses numerous challenges, which provide a fertile ground for many research themes and networks. Among them, the “NutRedOx” network will focus on the impact of redox active compounds in food on healthy ageing, chemoprevention and redox control in the context of major age-related diseases.
