The International Society of Nutrigenetics/Nutrigenomics (ISNN) is educational in its mission to serve as a focus for communication among interested scientists working in several disciplines (including nutrition, genetics, cellular and molecular biology, physiology, pathology, biochemistry, clinical medicine, and public health) studying the role of genetic variation and dietary response and the role of nutrients in gene expression. It is believed that improved communication across these different branches of medical and biological sciences will stimulate new research and increase knowledge of gene-nutrient interactions and genetic variation and dietary response.

The British Society of Environmental Medicine (BSEM) has existed as a professional body since 1983 and has made a major contribution to the integration of ecological principles into mainstream medicine in the UK. BSEM continues to promote education, research & collaboration. The principal aim of the Society is to promote the study and good practice of allergy, environmental and nutritional medicine for the benefit of the public. These interconnected disciplines play a major part in Ecological Medicine. They offer an approach to diagnosis, prevention and to non-toxic treatment that is relevant to all medical practice, and have proved particularly useful in patients with many very common chronic conditions that have not responded to conventional treatments.
