Interests: the effects of dietary exposures, lifestyle factors and gene-nutrient interactions on obesity and the metabolic syndrome
An individual's phenotype represents a complex interaction between the genetic and environmental factors over their lifetime. Nutrition is a key environmental factor in the pathogenesis and progression of common polygenic, diet-related cardiometabolic diseases such as obesity, metabolic syndrome, diabetes and cardiovascular disease. Nutrigenomics and nutrigenetics are rapidly emerging multidisciplinary sciences, which aim to explore the effects of nutrients on the genome, proteome and metabolome, and to elucidate the effect of genetic variation on the interaction between diet and disease. Nutrigenetics has the potential to change the future of dietary guidelines and diet-related disease prevention and therapy. A personalised nutrition approach based on identification of nutrient sensitive or responsive genotypes, whereby nutrient intake is manipulated or optimised based on an individuals' genetic profile to reduce disease risk or improve effectiveness of dietary recommendations, offers the potential to break the traditional public health "one size fits all" approach.
This special issue will highlight emerging research which contributes to our understanding of the role of nutrigenetics and/or nutrigenomics in the development, prevention and treatment of disease. Both research articles and reviews which explore these topics across a wide spectrum of diseases/phenotypes and research activity; from cellular and animal models, through to human studies and epidemiology are welcome.

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. Papers will be published continuously (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are refereed through a peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Nutrients is an international peer-reviewed Open Access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 500 CHF (Swiss Francs) for manuscripts submitted before 30 June 2012. The APC for manuscripts submitted from 1 July 2012 onwards are 1000 CHF per accepted paper. English correction and/or formatting fees of 250 CHF (Swiss Francs) will be charged in certain cases for those articles accepted for publication that require extensive additional formatting and/or English corrections.
