Dr. Janos Zempleni Presents Talk at International Symposium in Seoul, Korea
20 Oct 2013Seoul, Korea was the site of the October 25, 2013, International Symposium on Nutrigenomics and Personalized Food sponsored by the Korea Food Research Institute (KFRI). The organizers of the symposium state “ . . . diseases, especially metabolic diseases, could be predicted through decoding the personal information such as genes and life style. In particular, foods we consume daily may contribute to a larger extent to our well-being than previously expected. Scientists are discovering that large numbers of diseases could be prevented by consuming proper personalized foods based on genetic and life style information. Korea Food Research Institute has been actively working on developing such a customized food platform technology over the past few years.” KFRI assembled renowned scientists for this symposium from the US, Italy, Germany, Korea, and Canada in order to increase the interest and awareness of the public in the field of Nutrigenomics and Personalized Foods.
