The primary goal of this conference will be to provide a platform for researchers, scientists, educators, dietitians, health care professionals and policy makers to discuss the current status of nutritional genomic research. Renowned experts in the field will address the latest scientific findings on the mechanisms underlying diet-genome interactions. Challenges to the potential application of nutritional genomics to improve the nutritional value of the food supply and to address public health issues will be emphasized throughout the program. The final session of the conference will identify future directions for nutritional genomics research as well as challenges and opportunities for improving global health and wellness by preventing, delaying or mitigating chronic diseases and cancer with diet.
The ultimate goal of the conference is to use whole foods in our diet to prevent some of the catastrophic health outcomes currently overtaking our children and impacting their future health and longevity.
The Nutritional Genomics Conference was organized jointly by the Department of Human Nutrition at Cal Poly Pomona and the Center of Excellence of Nutritional Genomics at University of California, Davis.
