The main difference between the enable cluster and all other clusters and research groups is the possibility to scientifically and thorough research all stages of life- from pregnancy over early childhood, youth and adulthood to old age - with focus on nutrition and dietary behavior. This is possible due to the special combination of members within enable. Our interdisciplinary research groups consist of experts with special knowledge about one or more of the 4 stages of life: in our 23 subprojects specialists of all relevant disciplines can be found.

The interdisciplinary enable cluster is one of four clusters about nutrition research funded by Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF). Enable develops new strategies to promote healthier food choices in all stages of life (from birth to old age). Our research is interdisciplinary with focus on the interface of food science and nutrition technology with information- and communication technology as well as social studies. We thus contribute to the deciphering of the interaction between food choices and human genome. This also contains research about predisposition for and protection of chronic diseases like diabetes and their subsequent damage.

Prof. Dr. Hans Hauner, speakerperson of enable, will talk and give an overview about the competence cluster.

Time and location of the seminar: 17:00-17:45 Hörsaal XVII, EG, Nußallee 17.
