INMEGEN and NESTLÉ in Second Internacional Nutrigenomics Symposium

Mexico City, September 29, 2011

National Institute of Genomic Medicine (INMEGEN), Mexico’s leader institution in genomic medicine, and Nestlé, a global leader in Nutrition, Health and Welfare, have one of the most outstanding academic programs in genomics, the Second International Symposium in Nutrigenomics “Diet, genomics and Health “to be held on September 29 and 30 in Mexico City.

During this symposium, some of the most recognized experts in the world approach issues related to chronic conditions such as obesity, diabetes mellitus type 2 , hypertension and cancer, diseases that have a strong genetic component. In the event it is discussed the key role played by diet in the development of these diseases, which in Mexico and the world affect a significant number of people and growing, with high social and financial impact. It also highlights the importance of research in Nutrigenomics and how this discipline offers new opportunities to identify interactions between diet and human genetic variability, which can result in food-based strategies to prevent or help control conditions complex health.

Seminar “Nutritional Intervention in maternal obesity: Benefits in the metabolism of offspring”

Mexico City / Friday, September 23, 2011

On Friday, September 23, was held at INMEGEN Auditorium, Torre Zafiro, the Seminar “Intervención Nutricional en la obesidad materna: beneficios en el metabolismo de la progenie “given by Dra. Elena Zambrano from Instituto Nacional de Ciencias Médicas y Nutrición, Salvador Zubirán.

Dr. Zambrano said its research with mice related to fetal programming which showed that if women adopt changes in diet and physical activity before gestate new life reduces the chances that babies change the behavior of adipose tissue . During presentation emphasized the research focuses on how it affects the nutrition of the mother to her offspring.
