Core issues are medical enzymology, searching new food sources (protein problem), nutritional epidemiology, nutrition for professional athletes and cosmonauts, seeking new biologically active compounds, food toxicology and safety assessment of nanotechnologies, a study of the metabolism and mechanism of action of food contaminants, creation of a regulatory framework for chemical and microbiological safety, and much more. The infant and baby nutrition and nutrition of older people in recent years has developed rapidly.
