The 2021 ISNN Congress will focus on cutting edge research on human metabolism and on the interaction of the human genome with the metabolome, on human chemosensing and its interactions with the genome, and on the nutrigenetics of salt sensitivity. Numerous nationally and internationally acclaimed speakers will present. Nutrition researchers, clinicians, dietitians, and other health care providers from the region and from around the world are expected to attend. These are the leaders in the development and practice of advanced nutrition solutions. The Congress organizers look forward to welcoming you to exciting discussions in ever more relevant areas of nutrigenetics, nutrigenomics, metabolome, and precision nutrition.

As part of our online capacity development support for early career nutritionists the International Union of Nutritional Sciences and the International Academy of Nutrition Educators have partnered to offer free scholarship to participants interested in the NNEdPro ‘Nutrition Education and Population Health’ bundle of ten courses covering a wide range of nutrition and population health topics.
Application forms are available on the NNEdPro website IUNS-IANE Scholarship Competition (nnedpro.org.uk) where you can provide your CV and answer a couple of questions. An NNEdPro panel will then review all applications on 7th September and select 15 participants to gain free access to the training available on the NNEdPro Virtual Learning Environment (worth £124).
The scholarship is open to all, but priority is given to students from Low to Middle-Income Countries (LMIC’s).
