5th International Course in Nutritional Epidemiology

Start Date: 08/31/2014
End Date: 09/12/2014
Place: London, United Kingdom
Organization: Imperial College London
This advanced and interactive course aims to give you a solid grounding in the knowledge and skills that are required to work as a nutritional epidemiologist. Participants are expected to have postgraduate level experience in epidemiology.
The course faculty comprises members of world-class reputation from Imperial College London and leading institutions worldwide. There will be ample opportunity throughout the course to interact with the faculty.
The course will consist of lectures, computer tutorials, debates and discussions with experts and a small group assignment, with particular focus on current controversies in the field.
We will place strong emphasis on assessment of exposure (to include diet, body size, and physical activity), methodological considerations in study design, and pertinent statistical issues, including how best to address measurement error and adjust for total energy intake.  
You will learn to critically interpret results from nutritional epidemiological studies and evaluate the association between a given nutritional factor and disease. Current priorities in nutritional epidemiology, its future potential and challenges will be discussed. We will also address the translation of scientific findings into nutritional recommendations and policies.
The World Cancer Research Fund (WCRF) International will award six fellowships to outstanding applicants.
