One Nucleus is delighted to invite you the 13th Annual Congress of the International Society for Nutrigenetics and Nutrigenomics (ISNN) on 12th – 13th July 2019. It is the purpose of the ISNN Congress to increase the understanding of the role of generic variation and individual dietary response, and the role of nutrients in gene expression. 

Main themes of the lecture will be nutrigenetics of food intake and genetic variants that control the interaction of the gut microbiome with bioactive food compounds.

This session will focus on genomic differences affecting energy balance, genotype-specific nutrition intervention and the human genetics controlling the gut microbiome.

There will be an abstract competition for best contributions focused on these main themes. An intensive half-day workshop for health care providers interested in using genetic information in their practice will be held on the 13th July. The NNEdPro Global Centre in Cambridge will also host the Congress and it will convened in conjunction with the University of Parma and its School of Advanced Studies in Food Sciences and Nutrition, an NNEdPro key strategic partner.
