Precision Nutrition: Research Gaps and Opportunities Workshop is organized by National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI) and will be held from Jan 11 - 12, 2021 at National Institutes of Health campus, Bethesda, Maryland, United States of America. Description: 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 affect individuals' physiologic responses to diet. Precision nutrition science enables individualized dietary recommendations or therapies. 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. Poster presentations from Early Stage Investigators, graduate students and post docs are expected and encouraged. Additional details will be posted as soon as information is available.

Neurodegenerative Disorders and the Gut-Brain Axis: Parkinson's Disease is organized by National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases and will be held from Mar 04 - 05, 2021 at National Institutes of Health, Bethesda, Maryland, United States of America. Description: Each year approximately 60,000 Americans are diagnosed with Parkinson's disease and by 2030, nearly one million people in the U.S. will be living with the disease. Parkinson's disease symptoms are not limited to motor dysfunction and patients who develop Parkinson's disease often have a history of gastrointestinal (GI) symptoms, which may occur decades before the appearance of motor symptoms. There is a need for research on the neuropathological events in the GI tract that may provide insights into the disease origins and mechanisms associated with progressive neurodegeneration with the goal of developing innovative early-phase diagnostic tools or preventative therapies. Objectives: • Address issues in the coordinated care of motor symptoms as well as the non-motor GI dysfunction in patients with Parkinson’s disease. • Evaluate gut-brain communication in neurodegenerative disorders with a consideration of common mechanisms and approaches that may have cross-cutting impact for a broad range of neurodegenerative diseases. • Address gaps in knowledge of changes in enteric sensory processes and enteric nervous system structure and function in Parkinson’s disease. • Address the potential of the gastrointestinal tract as a source of biomarkers and novel therapeutic targets for early disease. • Facilitate crosstalk among brain-gut investigators from NIDDK, NINDS, and NIEHS (program officers from these institutes are on the organizing committee) and partnerships opportunities with these institutes for brain-gut research. Additional details will be posted as soon as information is available.
