Nestlé Institute of Health Sciences (NIHS) Head of Ageing and Cognitive Health, Gene Bowman, has played an instrumental role in establishing the first “Nutrition, Metabolism and Dementia” Professional Interest Area (PIA) at the Alzheimer’s Association’s International Society to Advance Alzheimer’s Research and Treatment (ISTAART).

The Alzheimer’s Association, based in Chicago, is the leading voluntary health organization in Alzheimer’s care, support and research. ISTAART is the Association’s professional society for individuals interested in Alzheimer’s and dementia science. Within ISTAART, the PIAs are groups of ISTAART members with common subspecialties or interests. They promote collaboration and allow members to share their latest discoveries and techniques.

There are many promising research findings on the link between nutrition and dementia, yet more research is needed to further understand this link. The field is extremely complex, making it hard to draw firm, evidence-based conclusions. There is real public health demand for reliable information on dietary practices that reduce the risk of Alzheimer’s dementia. However, this field is fragmented and resources are inadequate to fully provide the evidence base needed to make sound public health recommendations using nutritional approaches.
