19th ICN Pre Congress Seminar and Workshop
ILSI Southeast Asia Region and Commonwealth Scientific Industrial Research Organization (CSIRO) collaborate to bring you this informative seminar and workshop on the fundamentals and applications of nutrigenomics.
Nutrigenomics is a field of study that examines how the interaction between genetics and nutrition affects human health. Studying nutrigenomics helps us to understand the reasons and mechanisms of why individuals may respond differently to the same diet and brings us closer to the goal of achieving personalized nutrition. As nutrigenomics contains considerable technical jargon not readily understood, introduction to this field is important to practising nutritionists,dietitians and health professionals to gain a good understanding and appreciation of what it is. This session will include presentations as well as case studies in workshop format.
This exciting session is a pre-congress event to the International Congress of Nutrition meeting.
Venue: Meeting Room 224, 2nd Floor, BITEC, Bangkok, Thailand
