The Core Unit "Nutrition and Clinical Phenotyping" is integrated in the central structure of the IFB. It aims to coordinate the standardized clinical assessment of examination data in study patients of the IFB Out-patient Clinic and in subjects of the IFB study clinic within the different treatment modules and in clinical trials. Thus, the data is collected standardized for IFB research database and thereby made available. In the context of clinical care pathways and study projects the Core Unit coordinates the nutritional therapy in study patients and carries it out. The Core Unit also regulates the methodology for data collection in subjects such as the study of nutrient intake and body composition. Thus, the Core Unit provides the quality assurance and supports the development of the IFB to a national reference center for obesity and for the care of bariatric patients.
