ISNN 2021
Due to the uncertainty surrounding the evolution of COVID-19 pandemic, The 14th Congress of the ISNN for this year is now canceled. We hope to see you at the next year's congress, at a date and place to be further announced. Thank you for your understanding. We are looking forward to the end of these hard times. Any questions regarding this issue should be addressed to Mihai Niculescu at, or to Martin Kohlmeier at Thank you for your understanding.


The 14th Congress of the International Society of Nutrigenetics and Nutrigenomics will be held in Timișoara, Romania, on September 23-25, 2020. I believe that we are approaching the point where we can make decisions in our practices based on the principles of nutrigenetics and nutrigenomics. The 2020 ISNN Congress will focus on cutting edge research on human metabolism and on the interaction of the human genome with the metabolome, on human chemosensing and its interactions with the genome, and on the nutrigenetics of salt sensitivity. Numerous nationally and internationally acclaimed speakers will present. We expect attendance of nutrition researchers, clinicians, dietitians and other health care providers from the region and from around the world. These are the leaders in the development and practice of advanced nutrition solutions. We welcome you to our beautiful city and to exciting discussions in ever more relevant areas of nutrigenetics, nutrigenomics, metabolome, and precision nutrition.

ISNN President
