Scientific summary

Since the beginning of her career, Emmanuelle Kesse-Guyot has conducted scientific researches focusing on the holistic approach of the diet. She has conducted work on dietary patterns and special diets (Mediterranean diet for example) related to aging, cardiometabolic health etc. in several French cohorts.

Particular interest was given to the adherence to the French nutritional recommendations and the development of nutritional scores reflecting different diets.

As part of the SU.VI.MAX 2 study, she highlighted several modifiable factors (related to diet, nutrition or lifestyles) which may be predictors of successful aging and specifically brain aging and depression.

Her scientific priority is to consider an integrative multidisciplinary approach of the different dimensions of the diet: nutritional but also economic, environmental and toxicological, thus addressing the crucial challenge of the sustainability diet.
