Keynote Speaker at IAFNS Fourth Annual Summer Science Symposium is FDA Deputy Commissioner

The Institute for the Advancement of Food and Nutrition Sciences (IAFNS) is hosting its Fourth Annual Summer Science Symposium on June 4-5, 2024, at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C. This year’s symposium brings together leading nutrition and food scientists to discuss important topics related to food and nutrition.

One of the main themes of this year’s event is the role of artificial intelligence (AI) in food safety and nutrition. Other topics include food and mood, food classification systems, heavy metals in foods, dry sanitation, global perspectives on sweeteners, and more. The symposium aims to provide a platform for experts from government, industry, academia, and media organizations to share their insights and engage in meaningful dialogue.

In addition to scientific sessions, the symposium will also focus on science communication. Media professionals and other science communicators will have the opportunity to learn how they can amplify scientific research and findings through talks from experts in the field as well as a panel discussion with journalists.

Jim Jones, Deputy Commissioner of Human Foods at the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), will deliver the keynote presentation at the conference. Attendees will also have an opportunity to network during an evening reception on June 4th
