This article describes how the British Nutrition Foundation Drummond Pump Priming award was used to initiate a large scale collaborative project called the Gene-Nutrient Interactions (GeNuIne) Collaboration, the main objective of which is to investigate the effect of gene-nutrient interactions (nutrigenetics) on metabolic disease outcomes using population based studies from various ethnic groups. The article also provides a summary of gene–diet interaction studies, performed in developing countries as part of this collaborative project, and gives an overview of how nutrigenetic findings can be translated into personalised and public health initiatives for the prevention of metabolic diseases such as obesity and type 2 diabetes.
