Phenolics in Human Health Research Interest Group
EB 2013 Guest Society Program:
PhenHRIG Symposium 2013 at Experimental Biology, Boston, MA
Saturday April 20th, 1-5 pm, Boston Convention Center Room 152.
Title: Phenolic Compounds and Human Nutrigenomics
Abstract: Nutrigenomics refers to gene-diet interactions resulting in the potential for regulation of gene expression, in this case, by phenolic compounds in the human diet. Phenolics from plants appear to create a robust nutrigenomic response in consumers that may be important for interpreting the dietary effects of phenolics. PhenHRIG 2013 will describe phenolic-nutrigenomic interactions with regard to chronic diseases and their mechanisms.
