3rd Congress of the International Society of Nutrigenetics and Nutrigenomics
Skip Navigation


We welcome you to the 3rd Congress of the International Society of Nutrigenetics/Nutrigenomics (ISNN), cosponsored by the Division of Cancer Prevention of the National Cancer Institute; the Center for Genetics, Nutrition and Health in Washington, DC; and several groups within the U.S Department of Health and Human Services and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. We firmly believe that research and its translation into medical practice and dietary recommendations must be based on a solid foundation of knowledge about nutrigenetics and nutrigenomics.

The 3rd Congress is being held on October 21-23, 2009, at the Natcher Conference Center on the National Institutes of Health campus in Bethesda, MD, and consists of seven sessions. In keeping with the Society’s name, Sessions 1 and 2 address Frontiers in Nutrigenetics; Session 3 focuses on Epigenetics; Session 4 addresses the Impact of Transcriptomics on Nutrigenomics; Session 5 centers on Non-coding RNAs and Post-translational Gene regulation; Session 6 explores Moving beyond Genomics; and Session 7 focuses on the challenges and opportunities facing governments, international organizations, academia, and industry.

Nutrigenetics/Nutrigenomics represent the future for both primary and secondary disease prevention and treatment. Ultimately, research in these areas will lead to the expanded use of existing foods and their components and/or the production of new and novel foods for human growth, and development throughout the life cycle, health maintenance, prevention and disease treatment. Building partnerships among scientists within academia, government, international organizations, and industry, is fundamental to the success of unraveling the mysteries among dietary habits, growth and development and health.
