Food for Thought: Future of Nutrition

Classes, Lessons, Workshops and Talks

8 Dec 2020

How is it that a blob of slime instinctively knows what and how much to eat, yet humans can’t seem to figure it out?

What can a baboon’s diet teach us about the science of obesity in humans?

How do our genes, diet and microbiome work together to inform our risk of disease?

Join us to explore the big questions in nutrition with molecular nutritionist Dr Emma Beckett and nutritional ecologist Professor David Raubenheimer. In the final installment of Food for Thought, our speakers will draw on the Nourishing Australia ten-year plan as well as their own research expertise to deliver an engaging look at the future of nutrition science.
