|Professor Lowe & Dr Warthon-Medina|
Dr Marisol Warthon-Medina and her PhD Director of Studies, Professor Nicola Lowe, travelled to the four-day event where prestigious nutritionist scientists from around the world met and presented new advances in Human Nutrition and Public Health.
Collaborative research entitled 'The study of the long term impact of micronutrient supplementation during infancy on growth, anaemia and zinc status in pre-school children' was unveiled by Dr Warthon-Medina on the final day of the Congress.
The research was carried out by iINSAFSs and the Instituto de Investigación Nutricional, Lima, Perú.
Dr Warthon-Medina commented: "This was an incredible experience, providing a great opportunity to not only gain a good understanding of other research, but also to make valuable contacts. This was possible thanks to a travel grant from the Nutrition Society and support from the International Institute of Nutritional Sciences and Applied Food Safety Studies at UCLan."
