Scientists At Nestlé And King’s College London To Study How Genes Interact With Food

June 10, 2011: 10:38 AM EST
Nestlé announced that scientists from its research center in Switzerland will work with colleagues at King’s College London on a six-month project examining the interactions between genes and food ingredients, and how they can affect human health. Scientists will look at ways genes and their encoded proteins determine important bodily functions, including food metabolism, response to the environment and detoxification. Especially important is gaining knowledge of how changes to gene regulation from diet and exercise could impact human health. The partnership is the result of an Interchange Award given to King’s College by the United Kingdom’s Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC).
