Nestlé Institute of Health Sciences (NIHS) scientist Gene Bowman has played a key role in establishing the first research hub dedicated to ‘Nutrition, Metabolism and Dementia’ at the Alzheimer’s Association International Society to Advance Alzheimer’s Research and Treatment (ISTAART).

ISTAART is the Association’s professional society dedicated to Alzheimer’s and dementia science, and the hub, known as a ‘Professional Interest Area’ or PIA, will connect scientists with clinicians to make more informed decisions on how nutrition influences dementia risk, and co-ordinate future research.

Bowman, who is NIHS Head of Ageing and Cognitive Health, founded the PIA with two other scientists from academia, and will serve as its first industry chairman.

Based in Chicago, the Alzheimer’s Association is the world’s leading voluntary health organisation in Alzheimer’s care, support and research.

Collaborative projects such as this demonstrate Nestlé’s commitment to industry leadership innutrition and health research.
