Reversing the clock on biological ageing

Is reversing the clock of biological ageing possible? An evidence-based approach to the assessment of biological ageing and its clinical management. Do Nutrigenetics and Glycobiology help? Learn from two of the world’s top scientists in their respective subjects. Each session will be followed by a workshop facilitated by nutrition practitioner and clinical neuroscientist Miguel Toribio-Mateas.

Speakers:

Professor Giovanni Scapagnini & Neurobiology

Learn from one of the world’s top experts in Nutrigenetics, Professor Giovanni Scapagnini (MD. Phd Neurobiology). Prof. Scapagnini has published several hundred peer reviewed papers on nutritional interventions for the management of conditions of the ageing (Nutrigerontology), particularly on neurodegenerative diseases and on the use of polyphenols and essential fatty acids as natural therapeutic agents. He will provide you with clear health management pathways that combine nutrigenetic and functional assessments that you can implement in your clinics - from the day after his talk.

Professor Gordan Lauc & Glycobiology

Professor Gordan Lauc (PhD Glycobiology) will introduce us to the complex genetics of protein glycosylation and the role of alternative glycosylation in physiological and pathophysiological processes. Prof. Lauc has been publishing in the field of glycobiology for over 20 years and his current interest is focused on the complex genetics of protein glycosylation and the role of alternative glycosylation in physiological and pathophysiological processes.

With the latest genome wide association studies of the IgG glycome, a number of diagnostic and prognostic biomarker studies (diabetes, colorectal cancer, ulcerative colitis, etc) are currently in progress. Prof. Lauc will share with us the pattern and levels of various glycans and provide us with tools to contrast biological and chronological age. And over and above just allowing us to establish whether we are biologically older or younger than our chronological age, Prof. Lauc will demonstrate how the information we get from glycan-based assessments can help us prevent the development of disease, as well as aid in their management once they’ve developed.

Miguel Toribio-Mateas & the live Workshops

After each of the two keynote lectures, the session will turn into a workshop facilitated by nutrition practitioner and clinical neuroscientist Miguel Toribio-Mateas, who will immediately apply the science shared by the professors to several factual cases that you’ll be able to help him dissect. You’ll be invited to ask questions and contribute with your comments and suggestions.

Miguel will lead the collaborative assessment of a set of complex clinical situations following a functional medicine practice framework, with Professors Scapagnini and Lauc providing their input the most appropriate management options for these cases. This is a unique opportunity to access the expert knowledge of two world’s top scientists.

What you will learn:

  • Evidence-based approaches to the assessment of biological ageing and its clinical management. Is reversing the clock of biological ageing possible? Do Nutrigenetics and Glycobiology help? Learn this from two of the world’s top scientists in their respective subjects

  • How detoxification is a process that takes place in every cell, 24/7, and how it is different to popular “detox diets”

  • How glycan-based assessments can help us understand and prevent the development of disease, and to manage biological ageing

  • Clear management pathways that allow you to interpret your clients’ genetic variants and glycan assessments in context by contrasting them with other biomarkers from saliva, blood, urine and stool functional tests that you’re already using

  • Nutritional interventions for the management of conditions
