New ways to understand how foods affect me and my health
From 1st February 2021, you will find the full collection description on Frontiers for Young Minds website (https://kids.frontiersin.org/collections) together with the links for article submission. This collection will comprise scientific articles focused on the latest research in the field of nutrigenomics from technologies to study design, rewritten for and reviewed by children and young people (8-15 years). At the heart of the collection is the application of nutrigenomics as a basis to personalize nutritional advice for individuals and at a public health level. The collection is organized by NuGO and the NuGO Early Career Network (ECN), with a number of NuGO-affiliated authors already selected for participation in the collection.
Becoming a Frontiers for Young Minds Science Mentor
Frontiers for Young Minds relies on the passion and enthusiasm of Science Mentors who act as the link between authors and the young reviewers to support a successful peer review by children and young people. Science mentors play a key role for Frontiers for Young Minds collections by engaging with kids to help them understand the peer review process and gain the tools of reading information with a critical eye. If you are interested in being a Science Mentor for our collection, please get in touch by sending an email to: email@example.com
This open-access journal of Frontiers whose target audience is 8-15 year olds, it is written by scientists but reviewed by young people! In the nutrigenomics collection that we propose, we want to share the best of the latest advances in nutrigenomic science to a new generation of young scientists and test our communication skills at the same time.
Please find below the link to the recording of our recent webinar that gives an introduction of the NuGO ECN- Frontiers for Young Minds initiative that aims to bring the latest advances in nutrigenomic science to children and young people :
