Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Nutrients is planning a Special Issue focusing on nutritional advances in the prevention and management of chronic disease. Nutrition can impact the development of many chronic diseases afflicting modern society. Additionally, nutrition may be beneficial in assisting with the management of such diseases, including cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes, some cancers, dementia, and Alzheimer’s disease.

This Special Issue aims to bring together the latest research on the role of nutrition in preventing and managing chronic disease, arising from the Nutrients 2019 conference on “Nutritional Advances in the Prevention and Management of Chronic Disease”, which will be held in Barcelona, Spain from 25–27 September 2019. Conference presenters as well as plenary and invited speakers will be invited to prepare their presentations as full manuscripts for consideration for publication in the Special Issue. Moreover, others working in the field are also invited to submit manuscripts.

As such, we invite you to submit your latest research to this Special Issue.
