7th NINS on Nutrition and Epigenetics

Lausanne, Switzerland 27 October 2010 - 29 October 2010


The Nestlé Research Center organized a fascinating workshop exploring the interaction of nutrition epigenetics. Diet may have a lasting, life-long impact on the health of an organism, and the science of epigenetics provides mechanisms to explain these long-term effects and targets for intervention. During this Symposium, selected scientists and key opinion leaders discussed epigenetic mechanisms that allow gene expression which spans a life phase, a life span, or even which can be passed on from one generation to the next; how parental influence can affect their children’s health and behavior later in life; and how nutrition can impact epigenetic changes and gene expression. You can watch all presentations from world class scientists as webinars as if you were there!
