Absorption and metabolism of trace minerals across the human life span, with a focus on iron, iodine, zinc and calcium: The main tools of the laboratory are stable and semi-stable isotopes, nanotechnology and novel biomarkers. Studies are performed in both industrialized and developing countries, and include new delivery systems and diagnostics to assess and correct nutrient deficiencies, nutrient-infection interactions (e.g., malaria, the gut microbiome), and nanostructured minerals for nutrition applications.
