WORKSHOP ON SCHOLARLY PUBLICATIONS

Dissemination of research findings is an essential part of the scientific research process.  Hence, it is of utmost importance for a researcher who is writing a full paper with the aim of publishing in a reputable journal or in a reputable proceeding.  Furthermore, getting a paper published in a reputable peer-reviewed journal or proceeding is an important milestone for researchers.

Through the publication workshop, we intend to disseminate knowledge on writing scientific papers and scholarly publications to assist future researchers.  All conference participants are welcome to participate in this workshop.

Audience: All conference participants

Date: 07th November 2019

Time: 4.00p.m – 5.30p.m

Conference Chair’s Workshop

A workshop will be arranged by the Conference Chair to discuss the outcomes and get feedback of the Conference. Participants can share their experience of attending the conference and express their ideas on areas to be improved in future.

Moreover, the plans to be executed when organizing for Nutricon  2020  will be discussed during the workshop providing an opportunity for participants to share their views and voice their suggestions in terms of the conference theme, conference tracks, venue, dates, keynote speakers, partners featured events and any other applicable areas.

The workshop will provide an insight to deliver the future conferences in a fruitful way with the outputs received by the Conference Chair, Keynote Speakers, Participants and Organizers.

Workshop on Nutrigenetics & Personalised Nutrition

Aims: To provide participants with an understanding of molecular genetic basis of complex diseases such as metabolic (obesity and diabetes) and cardiovascular disease- related traits and to provide them with an understanding of topical issues in nutritional sciences which have made major advancements over the decade including the areas of genetic and nutritional epidemiology, gene-diet and gene-physical activity interactions and personalised nutrition.

On completion of this workshop, the participant should be able to,

  • Understand the basics of molecular genetics and genetic epidemiology of multifactorial diseases.
  • Understand the flow of biological information and macromolecular interactions in the context of gene expression.
  • Have developed an insight into the contribution of genetic variation to disease risk.
  • Have developed an understanding of the impact of lifestyle factors, in particular diet and physical activity, on the association between genotype and disease.
  • Have developed an understanding of the concept of personalised nutrition
