This conference is brought to you by ILSI SEAR Australasia and CSIRO, in collaboration with University of SA Business School.

The main aim of the conference is to explore the nature of individual human variation in response to food choice and nutrient intake, and how that may initiate a new era of opportunity for personalised nutrition.

Meet with leading global and regional experts who will present the latest science, discuss business implications and consider the regulatory environment for personalised nutrition with a focus on improved health and performance outcomes.

The conference will:

  • Consider the evidence and nature of variability in human nutrition requirements and metabolic response
  • Review current understanding of variation in the human genome with potential impacts on population and personal nutrition
  • Address the integration of the ‘omics sciences’ and insights from medical studies which have led to an increased understanding of personalised health
  • Consider the potential implications for consumers and food supply
  • Discuss how the regulatory environment may need to evolve and adapt to the changing world of personalisation
  • Provide the opportunity to engage in discussion around the translation of these recent developments into a new scientific paradigm.
