About

The Biomedical Sciences - Nutrition, Physical Activity and Metabolism programme is offered by .Maastricht University 

Overview

The aim of the Biomedical Sciences - Nutrition, Physical Activity and Metabolism programme from Maastricht University is to understand the physiology and the mechanisms underlying these derailments to provide the basis for the ultimate design and optimisation of preventive and therapeutic nutritional and life-style interventions that improve metabolic health and alleviate the diseased state.

In this specialisation you will study deeply into:

  •  the integrative and interorgan physiology of key metabolic processes;
  •  the biochemical and cellular basis for diet- and exercise-induced alterations in health;
  • the biochemical and cellular basis for the health threatening effects of a sedentary life-style;
  •  how nutrition and physical activity affect non-communicable diseases;
  •  identification of routes fundamental to the design of non-exercise related life-style interventions to promote energy turnover and health.

Programme Structure

Courses:

  • Course 1: Nutrition, Physical Activity and Metabolism: Fundamental Aspects

This course will provide in-depth insight into the major systems of human nutritional and exercise physiology and metabolism. With basic knowledge on nutrient uptake across the gastrointestinal tract as the starting point, the course will focus on cell and organ specific routes for conversion of macromolecules into their oxidizable derivatives. 

  • Course 2: Lifestyle Interventions and Metabolism; a Translational Perspective

In this course the role of diet and physical activity to prevent chronic disease in humans will be considered. Lifestyle factors modulating metabolism on a micro (cellular) and macro (organ) scale will be studied via a translational approach.
