Leadership, Professional Skills and Career Development
Funding is necessary in order to conduct nutrition research and provide professional and consumer education. However, funding brings with it a perceived conflicts of interest. Two documents have recently been developed that can provide guidance on this issue so that beneficial programs can be funded while managing conflicts. Session attendees will learn about the goals of the Scientific Integrity Principles, the process of their development, become familiar with the principles, and understand ongoing processes to establish policies which fall under the principles. Attendees will also learn about how a new framework for public private partnerships in nutrition research can be used to design research collaborations for the public good, while leveraging resources. The process of developing this framework, organizations that support the framework and how the framework can be used to move the profession of nutrition forward will be discussed.
Name three of the six principles established in the Academy's Scientific Integrity Principles.
Define three Academy activities related to the Scientific Integrity Principles.
Describe a nutrition research project that could benefit from a public private partnership structure as described by the new framework.
Thomas Murphy Ballroom 3-4
The pathophysiology of obesity is still unknown but there is mounting evidence that the gut microbiome may play an important role in disease pathogenesis and possibly treatment. Alterations in diet have been shown to shift the gut microbiome's effects on metabolism and regulation of body weight. This session will provide a focused overview of the scientific literature regarding the potential role of gut microbiome as a therapeutic target of weight management.
- Discuss the role of the gut microbiome and its impact upon development of obesity.
- Detail how diet impacts the obesity risk through its effect upon the gut microbiome.
- Explain the potential role of pre- and probiotics in the management of obesity.

Commensal intestinal bacteria may have a significant role in the development and treatment of autoimmune and immune-mediated inflammatory diseases. This session will investigate the genetic influences and the environmental factors, including diet, that impact the development of intestinal microbiota. Expert speakers will present the evidence for potential nutritional interventions that could alter the commensal microbiota and induce remission of autoimmune diseases.OBJECTIVES:
- Explain how exposure to certain environmental factors can induce the development of autoimmune diseases.
- Discuss the genetics of autoimmune and immune-related diseases.
- Analyze evidence indicating clinical use of pre- and probiotics, including gastrointestinal diseases and critical care.
