Precision Nutrition: Research Gaps and Opportunities Workshop

Background
The science of precision nutrition is a holistic approach to developing comprehensive and dynamic nutrition recommendations relevant to both individual and population health. It is a framework in research and practice that considers multiple, synergistic levels of influence: dietary habits, genetic background, health status, microbiome, metabolism, food environment, physical activity, socioeconomics, psychosocial characteristics, and environmental exposures.

Objectives
A primary goal of the field of precision nutrition is to optimize metabolic response in individuals or population subgroups through tailored dietary approaches to promote health and prevent and treat disease. Many factors, including all levels of influence mentioned above, affect individuals’ physiologic responses to diet. Precision nutrition science enables individualized dietary recommendations or therapies based on these factors. This workshop will bring together scientists with diverse expertise to explore how best to address these complex factors. It also will focus on diet-related chronic diseases and how artificial intelligence (AI) and deep-learning techniques may be used to generate individualized dietary recommendations and algorithms. Opportunities for research and training of the next generation of future researchers in the field of precision nutrition will be discussed.

Section 1: Precision Nutrition Science in Diet-related Chronic Diseases

Moderator: José Ordovás, Ph.D.

Poor nutrition is a crucial risk factor for a host of chronic diseases and conditions that are the leading causes of death and disability in the United States—including cardiovascular disease and stroke, type 2 diabetes, obesity, cancers, and others—with associated health care costs estimated to be in the hundreds of billions of dollars annually. Many studies have revealed huge differences in disease risk and biological responses to diet among individuals. Although those differences were initially thought to be driven by genetics, the current findings support the crucial combined roles of genetics, behavioral, sociological, environmental, and economic factors as response modifiers, making it challenging to fully answer the practical question of what to eat to stay healthy, which requires moving beyond a one-size-fits-all dietary recommendation for optimal health and disease prevention. Section 1 of the meeting will have focused discussions on dietary approaches to address the most common chronic diseases in our society and will be followed by panel discussions on critical research questions, gaps, and opportunities in precision nutrition science to address individual variability in dietary patterns across the life span.

Section 3, Part 1: Measuring Potential Contributors to Interindividual Variability in Dietary Responses

Moderator: Elizabeth Parks, Ph.D.
Historically, nutrition research investigating a single nutrient at a time has led to significant advancements in understanding the connection between diet and health. However, the variety of dietary patterns and the complexity of foods necessitate the development of new research strategies to understand real-life responses to food intake and how they differ among individuals. Section 3, Part 1, of the meeting will focus on the contribution of habitual nutritional status as a source of variability in research results. Lifestyle and social factors that influence the individual response to nutrients will be presented, including the effects of the immune system and sleep, health disparities, and psychosocial factors. Section 3, Part 2, will cover the impact of variability in taste and smell, environmental exposures, and ways that the technical measurement of response to eating can influence research findings. The new modeling approaches under development offer much promise in the discovery of how these various factors all fit together to result in a person’s unique dietary response.

Section 5, Part 1: Systems Science, Data Science, and Computational Analytics

Moderator: Bruce Y. Lee, M.D., M.B.A.

The underlying assumption of precision nutrition is that not everyone responds to diet in the same way. Therefore, one of the goals of precision nutrition is to develop predictive algorithms for what individuals should eat to optimize nutritional status or reduce dis-homeostatic excursions in continuous or repeated physio-metabolic measures (glycemia, blood pressure, heart rate variability, cognition or depression scores, wellness scores, plasma or urine measures, etc.) that serve as or could serve as earlier indicators of health problems or chronic disease biomarkers. The goal would be to use other inputs to develop these predictive algorithms based on various other -omic data (microbiome, genetics, metabolomics, etc.) and non-omic data (actual dietary intake information, physical activity, health disparities, electronic health record, culture, gender, geolocation, sociodemographics, and disparities, etc.).
