1. 6th Congress of the International Society of Nutrigenetics/Nutrigenomics (ISNN)

Dear colleagues,

It is with great pleasure that we announce the 6th Congress of the International Society of Nutrigenetics/Nutrigenomics (ISNN) to be held in the City of São Paulo, Brazil (November 18th-21st, 2012). This edition of the congress is being organized by the ISNN together with its Brazilian partners and co-organizers: the University of São Paulo (USP) and the Brazilian Food and Nutrition Society (SBAN).

Nutrigenomics/Nutrigenetics represent a post-human genome research area that has received increasing awareness by the academy, health professionals, food industry and the general public. As a multidisciplinary field, it adopts an integrative view towards the understanding on how gene-nutrient interactions manifest and profoundly influence health and disease states. Because non-communicable diseases represent major global public health problems and are deeply influenced by diet and genes, the 6th ISNN Congress scientific program will cover the impact of nutrients on gene expression (nutrigenomics), as well as the impact of genetic variation on dietary response (nutrigenetics), in cardiovascular diseases, obesity, diabetes, cancer, inflammation, metabolic control, human development, and exercise and muscle function. The translation of nutrigenetic/nutrigenomic knowledge into health promotion and disease prevention, prognosis, and treatment will be further addressed.

This congress will provide a special forum for junior scientists to present and discuss their research accomplishments, through the Young Investigator Award session. Moreover, because nutrigenomics/nutrigenetics is an emerging academic discipline, the 6th ISNN Congress will also offer as a pre-congress activity the Nutritional Genomics Introductory Workshop, which is being organized by ISNN, SBAN and the Dietitians in Integrative and Functional Medicine Dietetic Practice Group of the American Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics.

Thus we would like to invite you to attend the VI ISNN Congress in São Paulo and to interact with more than 40 speakers, who are world leading scientists. You will find our city a vibrant and cosmopolitan destination great for both science and leisure!

We are looking forward to meeting you in November!
