Alex Brito NutriHealth Scientist Population Health Preventive medicine

"Generation of translational research to impact population health, requires multiple areas of expertise and interdisciplinary work. Incorporation of new technologies (i.e. omics tools) are needed to be incorporated into well designed nutritional epidemiological studies. This challenge requires a high understanding of nutritional, biochemical and technological aspects, but also needs to take into consideration new knowledge to integrate the data into a personalized approach to impact public health" states Alex Brito, PhD, NutriHealth Group.
