Platform of Clinical Trials
in Nutrition and Health

for industry, hospitals and laboratories.

Nutrigenomic and nutrigenetic studies
to understand the scientific basis of the effects of food on health.


Our vision

It has been shown that different nutrients and food products play vital roles in the molecular mechanisms of the body. The knowledge of these processes, and the possibility of controlling them through what we eat, has opened the field of personalized nutrition.

However, this can only be achieved when the genetic profile of individual people and the context in which they live is taken into account. With this knowledge, individualized precision nutritional interventions can be prescribed, a concept that in the coming years will be part of our daily lives improving health with the greatest effectiveness.
