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

The Fourth Annual Summer Science Symposium is set to take place on June 4–5, 2024, at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C. Organized by the Institute for the Advancement of Food and Nutrition Sciences (IAFNS), this event will bring together top nutrition and food scientists to discuss a range of important topics related to food and nutrition.

One of the main themes of this year’s symposium is the role of artificial intelligence (AI) in food safety and nutrition. Other topics that will be discussed include food and mood, food classification systems, heavy metals in foods, dry sanitation, global perspectives on sweeteners, and more.

The event 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 and 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 providing attendees with a chance to network and socialize outside of formal sessions. This gathering promises to be an exciting opportunity for those interested in food science
