    'Staff publications' is the digital repository of Wageningen University & Research

    'Staff publications' contains references to publications authored by Wageningen University staff from 1976 onward.

    Publications authored by the staff of the Research Institutes are available from 1995 onwards.

    Full text documents are added when available. The database is updated daily and currently holds about 240,000 items, of which 72,000 in open access.

    We have a manual that explains all the features

Abstract The Nutrition Researcher Cohort (NRC) was launched at the 10th NuGOweek 2013 and represents a new generation research platform. Thereby, each individual provides and owns her/his selfquantification data on her/his health data using various gadgets and/or clinical analysis. The NRC approach is thus in a stepping-stone ‘development phase’ for a new way to merge observational research, personal health empowerment, (nutritional) intervention studies and preventive healthcare with the goal to become a globally accepted standard. Thereby, the NRC aims to renew the relationship between research and healthcare. Participants actively take part in research studies, by monitoring their health status themselves, instead of being passive data-and-blood-donating humans. In addition, participants will have a direct health benefit from participating in research by personalized health information and advice based on their personal data. We here present the first results of the initiation study, which included metabolomics and metabolite profiling of Dried Blood Spots (DBS) of finger prick blood, accomplished by five participating laboratories. Furthermore, all participants were asked to enter self-quantification data on food intake, anthropometrics, age, blood pressure, glucose response and several more. In total, about 300 metabolites were identified and relatively or absolutely quantified using LC-MS/MS and GC-MS. In addition, four trace elements were determined using total-reflection X-ray fluorescence analysis. Metabolite profiles will be connected to self-quantification data, anthropometrics and food intake. Thereof, first examples of visualization will be presented. The final aim is to provide personal advice on health, lifestyle and diet. As the NRC is a ‘crowd or citizen science’ initiative, any lab is invited to participate in optimizing and supplying DiY sampling (e.g. DBS, mucosal swaps) and analytics, metabolomics, data visualization and interpretation or other relevant methods.
