Investigating the role of nutrition on health and immune function.
The Diet, Genomics, and Immunology Laboratory focuses on three main research areas (1) determine human requirements, functions, and basic mechanisms of action for specific vitamins and minerals; (2) develop methodology for assessment of mineral and vitamin nutrition in humans; (3) develop cost-effective cellular, molecular, and immunological methods for evaluating micro-nutrient requirements and functions, and the effect of nutritional status on immune function.
