Top scientists attend Nestlé International symposium on Nutrition and Healthy Ageing

Posted:  Friday, November 16, 2012

On October 9th the annual Nestlé International Nutrition Symposium (NINS) was hosted by the Nestlé Research Center.

This year’s program highlighted the etiology of ageing and the fundamental mechanisms and genetics associated with the ageing process. Over two days, participants heard presentations on the nutritional and applied aspects of ageing, such as the physiological changes in musculoskeletal, immune and cognitive function, and the influence of food intake and caloric control.
The primary goal of the NINS is to bring together pre-eminent scientists in the field and to deepen Nestlé’s scientific understanding of this important topic and the contribution it can make to this important domain.
