Re-thinking nutrition advice: Where to look for biases in nutrition research

Re-thinking nutrition advice: Where to look for biases in nutrition research

Current nutrition epidemiologic research is largely based on the dependence of WEIRD (Western, Educated, Industrialized, Rich and Democratic) populations. This itself could create a potential systematic bias in drawing conclusions in the relationships between nutrition and disease outcomes. In this seminar, Zhaoli (Joy) Dai-Keller will first present her research from population-based cohorts in Singapore and in the U.S., studying the roles of dietary components in musculoskeletal disorders. She then will use examples of inconsistent results from systematic reviews and illustrate how these findings might influence the development of nutrition guidelines.

Morning tea provided, please RSVP here for catering purposes

 

About the speaker

Dr Zhaoli (Joy) Dai-Keller is a postdoctoral research fellow in the School of Pharmacy, Faculty of Medicine and Health, based at the Charles Perkins Centre (CPC). Her expertise is in nutritional epidemiology, primarily focused on the impact of nutrition in the prevention of chronic diseases across different ethnic populations around the world. Her current work is to use systematic approaches to identify potential biases at all stages in nutrition research and to examine how the basis of scientific evidence used affects the development of dietary guidelines globally.
