The Nestlé Research Center in Switzerland will collaborate with King’s College London on a joint research project into the relationship between food and genes.
Due to begin later this year, the six-month project will examine the interactions between genes and food ingredients, and how they can affect human health.
It will look at how our genes and their encoded proteins determine important bodily functions; including how efficiently we metabolise food, respond to the environment and detoxify our bodies from potentially harmful agents.
