discussed new research options.

 

Fourier-transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR), stable isotopes and their application on food and nutrition was the topic addressed at the conference taught by Professor Eleuterio Umpierrez, IAEA expert and Adjunct Professor at the Faculty of Chemistry, University of the Republic of Uruguay.

Professor Umpierrez gave the conference entitled “FTIR: principles and its application on food and nutrition”, to the group of professionals and researchers of INCAP. This conference took place at INCAP and its objective was that researchers at INCAP could get to know the different applications the FTIR equipment could have in the field of food and nutrition. Currently FTIR equipment is used to determine body composition and breast-feeding practices through the analysis of stable isotopes, this research projects are carried out by INCAP with financing of IAEA.

Researchers from CIIPEC attend meeting to reduce burden of chronic disease

The 2nd bi-annual NHLBI TREIN/HyTREC Consortium Workshop, hosted by the TREIN Nepal team and the Center for Translation Research and Implementation Science at the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute, US. National Institutes of Health took place at Nepal from 9 to 12 of September 2018. This workshop brought together approximately 45 researchers from the eight TREIN and HyTREC sites around the world to share progress and ideas, identify areas of research collaboration and information sharing, and push forward the global work of the consortium toward building research capacity and using proven-effective interventions to decrease the burden of non-communicable diseases in LMICs.

Dr. Manuel Ramirez, Coordinator of CIIPEC and PI of the study entitled “Implementing a multicomponent intervention to improve hypertension control in Central America” and Dr. Alejandra Paniagua, coordinator of the above mentioned research study attended this meeting and gave an update of the advances on this research project, which is part of the HyTREC consortium

COHORTS meets to review advances on Research project

COHORTS meets to review advances on Research project

Researchers of the Consortium On Health Outcomes Research in Transitioning Societies (COHORTS) met from 5th to 8th of September 2018 in Guatemala to address different topics related to field work and present preliminary data collected on the project entitled: “Child development and adult social and human capital: COHORTS”, funded by Bill and Melinda Gates.

This research project is being carried out on four different countries: Guatemala, Brazil, Philippines and South Africa; which have extensive and prospectively collected measures of socio-economic status, nutritional status and health throughout childhood as well as repeated measures of cognitive potential measured in childhood.
