Aims, contents and method of the course

The seminar on Nutritional Epidemiology is intended to discuss recent topics in nutritional epidemiology including the design of epidemiological studies associated to nutrition related issues, the evaluation and interpretation of results from epidemiological studies including statistical methodology, modern aspects of epigenetics, and the discussion of ongoing and recent large nutritional epidemiological studies.

Assessment and permitted materials

Grades for the seminar are based on the abstract (10%), the scientific background of the presentation (50%), the style and format of the presentation (20%), the discussion (10%) and the performance as chair of the seminar (10%). The presence of all participants for all scheduled seminars is compulsory.

Examination topics

The seminar is intended for advanced students and will be held entirely in English. Presentations, discussions, and all administrative issues of the seminar have to be in English.
