A first part of the research work is devoted to the study of the potentially toxic, mutagenic and carcinogenic effects of oral creatine supplementation.
Indeed, in sports circles, this substance is widely used in order to improve performance.

We are also conducting studies on the effects of essential amino acid supplementation (EAA) during muscle building training.

Our unit has become, in just a few years, both a center of expertise and reference in the context of nutritional monitoring for both high-level athletes
and amateurs, but is also at the forefront of the development of nutritional strategies for target populations such as the elderly.
