Welcome from the Chairs
9th Nutrients Webinar
Advances in Grain Nutrition, Omics and Cardiometabolic Health
Grains are widely consumed all over the world as they provide calories, macronutrients, micronutrients, dietary fibers, minerals, and plenty of phytochemicals that may have prolonged effects on human metabolism. High-throughput omics techniques enable a comprehensive understanding of the biological perturbations associated with dietary intake and other environmental exposures. A combination of traditional populations studies, such as cohorts, and RCTs, with multi-omics measurement, provide great opportunities to advance our knowledge of how the consumption of different grains affects human health. With particular interest in the effects of whole grains, refined grains, or staple foods, we are very excited to have invited outstanding pioneer scientists in the fields of nutritional epidemiology, precision nutrition, and multi-omics studies to this webinar to share their research output with the nutrition academic communities.

Department of Epidemiology and Biostatistics, Global Health Institute, School of Public Health, Xi’an Jiaotong University, China
Dr. Liu is an associated professor, the direct of the Laboratory of Human Nutrition and Metabolism, Global Health Institute, Xi’an Jiaotong Univesity. He got his PhD degree from the Institute of Nutritional Sciences, Chinese Academy of Sciences, and has been working as an academic visitor in NDPH, University of Oxford. He is currently an associate editor of Nutrition & Metabolism (SpringerNature), a member of the Basic Nutrition Branch, the Nutrition and Omics Technology Branch of the Chinese Nutrition Society. His research interests include cohort studies and randomized controlled trials of nutrition and cardiometabolic diseases, combined with multi-omics techniques to explore population precision nutrition and metabolic health. He has published over 40 papers in well-known journals, such as Lancet Public Health, Gut Microbes, Clinical Nutrition, JCEM, Nutrients, etc.
Department of Nutrition and Food Hygiene, School of Public Health, Fudan University, China
Dr. Sun serves as the Secretary General of the Basic Nutrition Research Branch for Chinese Nutrition Society, and used to be the Managing Editor of Nutrition & Metabolism for 6 years. Her research has focused on the roles of nutritional and lifestyle risk factors and omic-based biomarkers in predicting the onset of cardiometabolic diseases, nutritional interventions for subjects with high cardiometabolic risk, as well as applied research in the area of precision nutrition. She has published over 60 papers in international reputable journals, such as Diabetes Care, PLoS Medicine, Hypertension, Diabetologia, Am J Clin Nutr. She was awarded the "Top 10 Most Influential Diabetes Research Award 2016 in China".

Health Effects of Whole Grains- Not the Same for All Grains or Individuals
Rikard Landberg is professor of Food and Health. His group is studying the impact of food and food components may have on health and disease risk in observational and intervention studies as well as in various model systems. The role of plant-based fiber-rich food in appetite, hormonal regulation and cardiometabolic risk factors have a major focus. The group also develops and evaluates biomarkers of dietary exposure used in epidemiological research. Nutritional metabolomics ( MS- and NMR- techniques) has become increasingly important in research to find new biomarkers for both exposures disease risk. The group collaborates extensively with international expertise in statistics, epidemiology and medicine.

Wheat Bran Reshapes the Balance of Tryptophan Metabolism Mediated by Mut Microbiota to Improve Human Health
Dr. Lin Shi is an associate professor at College of Food Engineering and Nutritional Science, Shaanxi Normal University, Xi’an, China. She received the doctoral degree in Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences in 2017, and worked as postdoc scholar at Chalmers University of Technology. Dr. Shi is specialized in application of Nutritional "OMICS" Technologies in human cohorts, randomized controlled trails and animal studies, aiming to improve understanding of functional foods and nutritional factors on health promotion. Current research primarily focuses on the diet- gut microbiome interaction and its related health issues. She has published over 40 papers in reputable journals, such as Nature communications, Diabetologia, Redox Biology, and Food Research International.
School of Life Sciences, Westlake University, China.
Association of Gut Microbiota with Type 2 Diabetes and Modulation by Habitual Diet: A Population-Based Longitudinal Cohort Study in Chinese Adults
Dr. Wanglong Gou is a postdoctoral researcher at Westlake University, specializing in nutritional epidemiology and multi-omics research. He obtained his Ph.D. degree from Zhejiang University (jointly trained by Zhejiang University and Westlake University). His research focuses on the integration of machine learning methods with multi-omics datasets (including microbiome, proteomics, metabolomics and genetics) in human cohorts to identify novel biomarkers for cardiometabolic diseases. He also interested in the Nutri-microbiome epidemiology and precision nutrition. He has authored a total of 31 academic papers, including Diabetes Care, Protein & Cell, Diabetologia, BMC Medicine, and AJCN. Notably, his work published in Diabetes Care was selected as one of the "Top 15 Original Research Studies in Nutrition" by the Chinese Nutrition Society's Nutrition and Health Research Institute in 2021.
