AIFST is pleased to invite you to CSIRO's 'Human Variability in Response to Food and Nutrients: Building the Bridge to Personalised Nutrition – Challenges and Opportunities for Industry, Public Health and Academia'

 

Objective:
Population-based studies in food and nutrition have been essential in contributing to overall human wellbeing. However, improved understanding of ‘individual human variation’ in nutrient requirements has awaited advancements in nutrigenomics and the mathematical and social sciences. For example, the ‘omics sciences (genomics, proteomics, metabolomics)’ are providing new insight and understanding that can be applied to personalised nutrition with the ambitious objective of one-to-one product design. This conference will explore the nature of individual human variation in response to food choice and nutrient intake, and how that may initiate a new era of opportunity for personalised nutrition, and will:
 
1. Consider the evidence and nature of variability in human nutrition requirements and metabolic response
2. Review current understanding of variation in the human genome with potential impacts on population and personal nutrition
3. Address the integration of the ‘omics sciences’ and insights from medical studies which have led to an increased understanding of personalised health
4. Consider the potential implications for consumers and food supply
5. Discuss how the regulatory environment may need to evolve and adapt to the changing world of personalisation
6. Provide the opportunity to engage in discussion around the translation of these recent developments into a new scientific paradigm.
