The Interagency Committee on Human Nutrition Research developed the National Nutrition Research Roadmap to identify human nutrition research gaps and opportunities that should be addressed within the next five to ten years. This ASN webinar series will look at current human nutrition research opportunities offered by federal agencies based on the Roadmap.
The first webinar will highlight research gaps and opportunities related to the basic science and epidemiology of nutrition, in relation to the following topics highlighted by the Roadmap: How do we enhance our understanding of the role of nutrition in health promotion and disease prevention and treatment? and how do we enhance our understanding of individual differences in nutritional status and variability in response to diet? By the end of this program, attendees will understand research gaps and opportunities, including the open funding opportunity announcements (FOAs), training opportunities, and research resources related to the basic science and epidemiology of nutrition, as found in the National Nutrition Research Roadmap. Participants will have time to ask the speakers questions following the presentations.
