Part 4 of a four-part webinar series focusing on the questions and topics in the National Nutrition Research Roadmap 2016‒2021: Advancing Nutrition Research to Improve and Sustain Health 

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 fourth webinar will highlight research gaps and opportunities related to the application of systems science, design and systems change to effect population level change in eating behaviors, in relation to the following topics highlighted by the Roadmap: How can simulation modeling that applies systems science in nutrition research be used to advance exploration of the impact of multiple interventions? How can we advance nutritional sciences through the use of research innovations involving Big Data? 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 application of systems science, design and systems change to effect population level change in eating behaviors, as found in the National Nutrition Research Roadmap. Participants will have time to ask the speakers questions following the presentations.
