Join us as six early and mid-career level researchers present their findings and discuss how their exciting research will further the field of nutrient-gene interactions in complex diseases. This webinar will be moderated by Drs. Saroja Voruganti and Bradley Ferguson and will feature a wide variety of topics ranging from nutritional metabolism, use of electronic health records to evolutionary insights as they relate to nutrient-gene interactions. These topics will be presented by Dr. Brian Bennett of Western Human Nutrition Research Center, USDA, Dr. Hassan Dashti of Harvard University, Dr. Nafisa Jadavji of Midwestern University. Dr. Rachel Kopec from The Ohio State University, Dr. John Miklavcic of Chapman University, and Dr. Kaixiong Ye of University of Georgia.
At the end of this program, attendees will be able to describe novel advances in the field of nutrient-gene interactions in complex diseases, including:
• Use of FADS genotype to understand essential fatty acid requirements in pediatrics
• Interactions of one-carbon metabolism genetics and diet on ischemic stroke outcome
• Use of electronic health records for gene-nutrition interaction research
• Gene x diet interactions in diverse mouse populations
• Gene x nutrient interaction in colorectal cancer risk
• Evolutionary Insights into Gene-Diet Interactions
