Empowering consumers to prevent diet-related diseases through omic sciences

PREVENTOMICS builds a new paradigm in preventive personalised nutrition based on the potential of omics and behavioural flexibility. The project will create a new integration of genetic, nutritional 
and psycological factors thanks to the application of state-of-the-art metabolomics technologies and computional modelling to assess the real incidence of disease-inducing factors on the organism.

The main outcome from PREVENTOMICS is a novel mFood Platform, a unique-in-its-kind service, interoperable with current existing Apps for monitoring health status and with personalized nutrition software, thus opening the door to the personalisation of any type of health treatment where combinations of genetic, biological, nutritional and psychological factors are important.

PREVENTOMICS will be validated in three 
different case scenarios, performing relevant interventional studies with healthy and obese volunteers, to demonstrate its potential for personalisation of nutrition at the three levels of the food value chain (processing and distribution, marketing and consuming closest to the end- users).
