There are a number of genetic disorders in the metabolism of several essential nutrients which molecular basis has been elucidated during the last years. Knowledge of the genetic basis can lead to increased understanding of a disease, better diagnosis and also to new treatment options. The course will focus on
- genetic basis of disease / disorder
- treatment options
Students will know about the genetic basis of disorders in nutrient metabolism, and will gain an improved understanding of physiologic regulation of nutrient metabolism. They will also learn about diagnosis and treatment of diseases. In addition, they will learn about general methods in genetic medicine and molecular nutrition.
