Mission

The mission of the Diet, Genomics, and Immunology Laboratory (DGIL) focuses on four main areas: (1) To elucidate the mechanisms by which diet, nutrients, bio-active food components prevent chronic diseases and promote human health; (2) To identify chemical forms and bioavailability of nutrients, bio-active components in foods; (3) To develop methodology, biomarkers for assessment of nutrients status, health benefits in humans for nutrients and food bio-active components; (4) To develop cellular, molecular and immunological methods for evaluating nutrient bioavailability, metabolic function, requirements, and their effects on immune function, inflammation and gut microbiome.
The Diet, Genomics and Immunology Laboratory is located in Beltsville, MD and is part of the Northeast Area.
The Research Leader is Thomas Wang.
