Discovery Science for Global Health

  • PREVIEW
  • READ ARTICLE
  • OPEN PDF

ISSN

This is an unusual issue of Sight and Life, and some readers might be surprised by the complexity and detail of the content that Klaus Kraemer and his editorial team present here. We can read about the wonders of the microbiome  the myriad organisms that travel through life with us and affect our health and well-being. We can read of genetics and epigenetics and metastable epialleles, of genomics and epigenomics, and of nutrigenetics and nutrigenomics; and why not nutriepigenetics? We can read of the proteome and the deep proteome, the metabolome and every other type of –ome, even including the nutriome (a new one for me, I confess). We can read of systems nutrition and flexible phenotypes and metabolic inflammatory health, some of which can be analyzed by a next generation “sequential windowed data independent acquisition of the total high resolution mass spectra (SWATH-MS) on triple time-of-flight mass spectrometer” . Who would have thought we would read about such wonders in the pages of Sight and Life? Some of you will be quite reasonably challenging the presence of such basic science in a journal known for its core mission of eradicating malnutrition worldwide. Others will be daunted by the complexity of the topics addressed. Please bear with us, nevertheless, because the manner in which we navigate these scientific swamps and harness these new technologies has very important implications for future global health, and it lies squarely within Sight and Life’s vision of “a world free from malnutrition”. And for those of you who do wish to challenge the relevance of basic research, this is precisely what I propose to do on your behalf in this contribution. I myself strongly believe that discovery science in nutrition will paradoxically lead us more quickly to effective interventions than continuing to feel our way in the dark with trial after trial that yield results that disappoint and perplex us. This conviction needs to be stress tested, however, if we are not to promise a false dawn.
