25th Annual Meeting of the Population Approach Group in EuropeAuthor:
Michael Morimoto, Lyn Powell, Rajalakshmi Santhakumar, Aaron Gowins, Joanne Arsenault, Carson Chow, Rukmini Kumar, Quantitative Physiologic Modeling team, Representing the Healthy Birth, Growth, and Development knowledge integration (HBGDki) CommunityHBGDki Topics:
- To develop a quantitative physiologic model that represents the major causal dependencies relating nutritional status and enteric pathogen exposure to macronutrient and energy availability.
- To apply the model to better understand and predict effective interventions for growth faltering in children in low- and middle-income countries.
