Conferences & SymposiaBiomedical and Health Data Sciences Collaborative (BHDSC) Winter 2023 Symposium
The Biomedical and Health Data Sciences Collaborative (BHDSC), a cross-disciplinary group formed by Tufts CTSI and the Institute for Clinical Research and Health Policy Studies (ICRHPS) at Tufts Medical Center, invites you to attend their Winter 2023 Symposium on “Precision Nutrition and Artificial Intelligence” on Wednesday, December 6 at 2:00PM.
The event will feature presentations from Sai Krupa Das, PhD, a senior scientist on the Energy Metabolism Team at Jean Mayer USDA Human Nutrition Research Center on Aging and Professor in the Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy, and Eric Miller, PhD, Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Mathematics, Biomedical Engineering, and Computer Science.
The goal of precision nutrition is to provide individual dietary recommendations based on an individual’s genetic background and overall well-being. The NIH Common Fund’s Nutrition for Precision Health supports the development of algorithms to predict individual responses to food and dietary patterns by contributing and leveraging data from the All of Us Research Program. This challenging project requires collaborations between experts in nutrition, genetics, statistics, machine learning and artificial intelligence. This symposium will highlight some of the ongoing efforts at the Jean Mayer USDA Human Nutrition Research Center on Aging and Tufts Institute for Artificial Intelligence, and highlight opportunities for collaborations in this exciting program.
