Global health research and practice initiatives are now aimed at elucidating fundamental knowledge on variations in human nutrient sensing and signaling systems for the purposes of enhancing health, increasing health-spans, and reducing illness and disability in diverse populations. Central to this effort are creative discoveries, innovative research strategies, and their applications in rational, targeted preventive and therapeutic interventions guided by the precision nutrition and wellness paradigm.
In this issue of Nutrients, we welcome state-of-the-science original research reports and systematic reviews advancing knowledge linking the integrated roles of genetics, epigenetics, age and gender to actions of food and nutrients in pathogenesis and pathophysiology of common, chronic complex disease.
Potential topics include, but are not limited to, the following:
- National initiatives to support development of informative, feasible and sustainable advances in the field of precision nutrition;
- Features of sound research designs necessary for biologically plausible and unequivocal inference in the field of precision nutrition;
- Role of large-scale public-access resources in guiding sound inquiry in precision nutrition;
- Role of ethnographic and epidemiologic analyses in advancing inquiry and inference precision nutrition;
- Role of integrative omic analyses in advancing inquiry and inference precision nutrition;
- Role of computational biochemistry and -biophysics in advancing inquiry and inference precision nutrition;
- Normal aging and age-related pathophysiology in practice of precision nutrition.
- Role of non-intrusive physiological imaging systems in accurate and precise exposure, process and outcome measurement in precision nutrition;
- Measurement of nutrient sensing on ultra-structural scales;
- Measurement of integrated systems driving nutrient-based signaling at cellular and ultra-structural
- Role of model human systems in elucidating the influence of molecular variation on mechanisms driving nutrient sensing and signaling of physiological significance across the life-span;

Manuscript Submission Information
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. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short 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 thoroughly refereed through a single-blind 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 2400 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
