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

The Fourth Annual Summer Science Symposium, hosted by the Institute for the Advancement of Food and Nutrition Sciences (IAFNS), will be held on June 4–5, 2024 at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C. This year’s event promises to be an exciting gathering of top nutrition and food scientists, discussing a range of important topics related to food and nutrition.

One of the main themes of this year’s symposium will be the role of artificial intelligence (AI) in food safety and nutrition. Other topics under discussion include food and mood, food classification systems, heavy metals in foods, dry sanitation, global perspectives on sweeteners, and more. The conference 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 the importance of science communication. Media professionals and other science communicators will have the opportunity to learn how they can amplify scientific research and findings. This will include talks from experts in the field as well as a panel discussion with journalists.

The keynote presentation at the symposium will be delivered by Jim Jones, the Deputy Commissioner of Human Foods at the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The conference will also feature an evening reception on June 4th which provides attendees with a chance to network and socialize outside of formal sessions
