Session Abstract: The double burden of malnutrition, co-existence of stunting, wasting, micronutrient deficiencies on the one hand with rising of overweight and obesity, remains a global problem with disproportionate burden on low- and middle-income countries. Complex and dynamic food systems driven by strong factors such as climate change, urbanization and the Covid-19 pandemic exacerbate the problem via reduced food nutrient concentration and bioavailability, increased sedentary lifestyle, consumption of unhealthy diets and exposure to adverse environmental hazards. Ability to accurately measure nutrition indicators, such as nutrient absorption, infant and young child feeding practices, and body fat accumulation becomes urgently imperative. The presentation will cover how the IAEA supports its Member States to apply safe and non-invasive stable isotope and related nuclear techniques to generate the evidence necessary for policy formulation and programme design to combat the double burden of malnutrition.

Abstract: General dietary guidelines have not achieved the objective of reducing nutrition-related diseases, as they do not yet include how to address the inter-individual variability in response to the foods consumed. The molecular bases of this variability are complex and partially defined by our genome and microbiome. Their elucidation is the objective of Precision Nutrition, driven by large intervention studies such as PREDICT and the NIH Nutrition for Precision Health. Dr. Jose OrdovasDr. Jose Ordovas is Professor of Nutrition and a Senior Scientist at the USDA-HNRCA at Tufts University in Boston, where he also is the Director of the Nutrition and Genomics Laboratory. His research interest focuses on the genetic and epigenetic factors predisposing to age-related chronic diseases and their interaction with dietary environmental, behavioral and chronobiological factors. He has published over 900 scientific articles (h-index 143).

Although the life and biomedical science has in the Covid-pandemic demonstrated exceptional performance, skills, power and speed in both, diagnostic and therapeutic dimensions, there is an erosion process in science that started decades ago but gains momentum now. It has been recognized that there is a significant reproducibility crisis that affects in essence all areas of the life and social sciences with estimated 60 to 80% of all published studies classified as not reproducible. Surveys amongst scientists revealed this problem emerged on ground of the competitive environment and pressure to publish that fostered the significant contribution of scientific fraud. Integrity of science has thus become an issue and many organisations have integrated science integrity measures into their education programs. To overcome causes that limit reproducibility of science and to prevent faked data, some publishers have installed artificial intelligence (AI)-based pre-screening of manuscripts into the submission process. AI may in the future also be an integrated part of the later review process because the enormous number of papers brings human comprehension to its limits - even if you are an expert in the field. Scientists believe that science is self-correcting but “to an alarming degree, it is not” Whether AI-based processes overcome the current quality crises, needs to be seen. Whether the inclusion of AI in the entire science and publication process also can prevent the “bubble phenomenon” that science develops in analogy to other areas of our life needs also be tested. Interdisciplinary approaches, requested almost like a mantra, can be found, yet the disciplinarity – as important as it is – promotes the development of “science bubbles”, also evident by the growing number of specialised journals. These developments are mirrored in the public perception and increasing mistrust in science as surveys conducted by the EU commission and national science monitoring organsiation´s reveal. Although there is strong public belief that science delivers innovations, the question arises of whether enormous scientific output is indeed reflecting true creativity with high innovation momentum. An analysis of citation networks concludes that the annual publication rate over decades follows exponential whereas that of novel ideas follows a linear development with low slope. We are facing a creativity crises that needs to be tackled by major revisions in current science frameworks

University of California, Davis

Bruce German received his PhD from Cornell University, joined the faculty at the University of California, Davis in 1988 and is currently Director of the Foods for Health Institute and professor, at University of California, Davis. The goal of his research is to build the knowledge necessary to improve human health through diet. Research interests include the structure and function of dietary lipids, the evolution of lactation and the role of milk components in food and health and the application of metabolic assessment to personalizing diet and health. Research projects are studying how individual human metabolism responds to the chemical composition and structural organization of foods. Each person has slightly different responses to diet based on their genetics, their metabolism and their nutrition status. It is thus necessary to understand the molecular basis of these differences, how to recognize them and design food strategies to complement them. The model being used of how to proceed is lactation, the product of millennia of constant Darwinian selective pressure to produce a food to nourish, sustain and promote healthy infants to be healthier http://www.imgconsortium.org/ . Bruce and colleagues have published more than 450 papers with an H-index of 105 and patented various technologies and applications of bioactive agents and cofounded the startups Evolve Biosystems, BCD Bioscience, Digestiva Inc., and Matrubials Inc.

While there have been significant advances in drug discovery for diabetes mellitus over the past couple of decades, there is an opportunity and need for improved therapies. While type 2 diabetic patients better manage their illness, many of the therapeutics in this area are peptide hormones with lengthy sequences and a molecular structure that makes them challenging and expensive to produce. Using machine learning, we present novel anti-diabetic peptides which are less than 16 amino acids in length, distinct from human signalling peptides. We validate the capacity of these peptides to stimulate glucose uptake and Glucose transporter type 4 (GLUT4) translocation in vitro. In obese insulin-resistant mice, predicted peptides significantly lower plasma glucose, reduce glycated haemoglobin and even improve hepatic steatosis when compared to treatments currently in use in a clinical setting. These unoptimised, linear peptides represent promising candidates for blood glucose regulation which require further evaluation. Further, this indicates that perhaps we have overlooked the class of natural short linear peptides, which usually come with an excellent safety profile, as therapeutic modalities.

What are we eating? Metabolomics can give us an insight. Applications of metabolomics in nutrition research has increased in recent years. The applications can be generally be grouped into one of the following: (1) Applications to identify dietary biomarkers for single foods or for dietary patterns (2) Applications to dietary intervention studies to help understand metabolic alterations following certain diets and (3) Applications to diet-related diseases. With respect to dietary biomarkers there has been a proliferation of publications in this field: these biomarkers have the potential to act as objective measures of dietary intake thus overcoming some of the key issues with traditional assessment methods. To date, metabolomic profiling has been successful in identifying a number of putative biomarkers of food intake. While significant progress has been made in this field a number of challenges remain and will be discussed.

Foodomics: The significance for future food Alberto Valdés, Gerardo Alvarez, Miguel Herrero, Elena Ibáñez, Alejandro Cifuentes Foodomics Lab, CIAL, CSIC, Madrid, Spain Foodomics has been defined as a discipline that studies the Food and Nutrition domains through the application and integration of advanced omics technologies (i.e., massive analysis techniques) to improve consumer’s well-being, health, and confidence. Foodomics allows addressing issues related to food safety, bioactivity and quality that were unapproachable until a few years ago. In this work, we will present some of the huge possibilities made possible by using Foodomics, in which we combine the background and tools from different areas of knowledge to unravel the huge complexity of the Foodome which has been defined as the pool of all compounds present in a food sample and/or in a biological system interacting with the investigated food at a given time.

Cybersecurity is one of the hottest and most urgent industry wide topics. The activity is expanding from IT groups to front line operations. When starting to review a new topic, it is important to review the basics, foundation and then the key focus for efficient and effective implementation. Cybersecurity – and higher level information technology and computer science – is not in the usual area of expertise for food safety managers. Trying to make uniformed decisions is not only unwise but can be dangerous to the point of putting the entire company at risk. This presentation will present a high level overview of “cybersecurity” background and best practices, and then present “the role of the food safety manager.” This work is based on works created within the authors responsibilities teaching undergraduate college level supply chain management.
