Dr. Dimitris Tsoukalas will be a speaker at the International Conference on Environmental Toxicology and Pharmacology next August (23-25) 2018 in Chicago (USA)
The Speech of Dr. Tsoukalas, President of the European Institute of Nutritional Medicine – E.I.Nu.M., will focus on Metabolomics: a novel tool of precision medicine.
Abstact: “Dramatic changes of the environment in the last decades have resulted in nutrient poor food and excessive intake of heavy metals and toxins through air, drinking water and dietary habits. Non – communicable diseases (NCD) which are responsible for almost 70% of global deaths are mainly caused by modifiable risk factors. These include behavioral and metabolic risk factors such as unhealthy diet, tobacco smoke and alcohol.
Metabolomics, the quantitative and comprehensive evaluation of metabolites, has emerged as a novel and powerful tool in precision medicine. As one of the “omics” technologies, metabolomics has attracted increasing attention for its potency in identifying unique biomarkers.”
