FOODBALL Project Overview

The Food Biomarkers AllianceFoodBAll – is a JPI-funded, multicentric project aiming to develop strategies for food biomarker discovery and validation, and to identify biomarkers of intake for a range of foods.

This page is maintained as a collaborative effort of numerous experts in the field of food metabolomics. It will provide support for the food metabolome community through the collection of useful information and tools, concepts, current practices and major updates in the field.
