Precision nutrition research identifies how diet differentially affects individuals and population subgroups to reduce the risk of chronic disease and promote health equity.
IHA Precision Nutrition research focuses on three key areas:
- Precise measures of dietary intake, chrononutrition, lifestyle, genetic/epigenetics, microbiome
- Biomarkers, sensors, wearables, metabolomics and other technologies must be developed to characterize the dietary exposome
- Machine learning, AI, and data science to integrate and optimize multi-level data from various sources to characterize the exposome
