Event Details

BioCeuticals to set new standards for functional medicine education in 2016.
As the functional approach to medicine continues to evolve, we are now witnessing the emergence of a powerful systems-oriented model capable of addressing the healthcare needs of the 21st century. Over the last decade, there has been an explosion of research and evidence in support of this personalised, wholistic approach. The challenge currently facing clinicians is learning how to utilise this information, which now incorporates the latest in genetic science and systems biology, as well as an appreciation of the profound impacts of dietary, environmental and lifestyle factors.
BioCeuticals will be holding the 4th BioCeuticals Research Symposium from 22-24 April 2016. Over three days, the presenters will provide healthcare professionals with leading, cutting-edge research, highlighting the future of clinical, evidence-based, functional, metabolic and integrative medicine.
Under the theme Revolutionary Strategies for Complex Diseases, this Symposium will broaden and enhance the scope of functional medicine and provide a platform for effective systems-based clinical strategies.
