Frontiers in Nutrition was added to the “Frontiers in” journal series of the Nature Publishing Group with the mission: “No subject pertains more to human life than nutrition. The aim of Frontiers in Nutrition is to integrate major scientific disciplines in this vast field in order to addressthe most relevant and pertinent questions and developments.”

At the dusk of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and the dawn of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)  we wanted to give leading thinkers in nutrition science the opportunity to share with our readers where they think the Frontiers are located. You will find the products of their thought in this edition of the magazine, in whose pages you can explore a wide variety of topics including multiple micronutrients in pregnancy, epigenetics, biomarkers and bio-indicators, benefit-risk assessment, inflammation, nutrigenetics and nutrigenomics, proteomics and metabolomics, mobile health, systems nutrition, and food systems, as well as early life nutrition and the developmental origins of adult disease. 

But when do we reach the frontiers of nutrition? This is largely context-specific. And it is up to us, the nutrition community, to define the Frontiers in Nutrition based on context and need, working in partnership across sectors and disciplines, considering the whole continuum of evidence and gathering more evidence downstream in programs so as to give discovery science a role for smarter and more efficacious interventions.
