From Food and Mood to AI in Food Safety: The Fourth Annual Summer Science Symposium of the IAFNS Tackles Important Issues in Nutrition and Beyond

The Institute for the Advancement of Food and Nutrition Sciences (IAFNS) is hosting its Fourth Annual Summer Science Symposium on June 4-5, 2024 at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C. The symposium will bring together leading nutrition and food scientists to discuss a range of important topics related to food and nutrition.

This year’s symposium will focus on the role of artificial intelligence (AI) in food safety and nutrition, with discussions on food and mood, food classification systems, heavy metals in foods, dry sanitation, global perspectives on sweeteners, and more. The event aims to provide a platform for experts from government, industry, academia, and media organizations to share their insights and engage in meaningful dialogue.

In addition to scientific sessions, the symposium will also emphasize the importance of science communication. Media professionals and other science communicators will have the opportunity to learn how they can amplify scientific research and findings through talks from experts in the field and a panel discussion with journalists.

The keynote presentation at the symposium will be delivered by Jim Jones, Deputy Commissioner of Human Foods at the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Attendees can also look forward to an evening reception on June 4th which will allow them to network and socialize outside of formal sessions.

Overall, this symposium provides a unique opportunity for scientists from various backgrounds to come together and discuss critical issues related to food and nutrition while also promoting science communication efforts.
