Creating Biomedical Technologies to Improve Health


Joint NIH and USDA Workshop on Using Nanotechnology To Improve Nutrition Through Enhanced Bioavailability and Efficacy

Tuesday, November 29, 2011 (All day) to Wednesday, November 30, 2011 (All day)
Hyatt Regency Bethesda in Bethesda, Maryland

The goal of the workshop was to discuss and evaluate the state of the science and to identify knowledge gaps in the use of nutrients (and bioactive food components) for disease prevention and opportunities to improve safe, targeted delivery and controlled release of these components to improve absorption, distribution, metabolism, and elimination through nanotechnologies. Another goal was to catalyze collaborations and stimulate ideas for diet and disease prevention research.
