Research Project: Metabolomic Approaches to Dietary Interventions

Location: Obesity and Metabolism Research

Project Number: 2032-51530-022-50-S
Project Type: Non-Assistance Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: Sep 1, 2017
End Date: Jun 30, 2019

Objective:
The objective of this Non-Assistance Cooperative Agreement (NACA) is to facilitate the joint research of human and metabolomics research at the Western Human Nutrition Research Center (WHNRC), located on the campus of the University of California Davis (UC Davis). The proposed research focus is metabolic individuality in response to the Dietary Guidelines for Americans and the relationship between an individual’s response and disease prevention. Studies will include: Improving Public Health by Understanding Diversity in Diet, Body, and Brain Interactions; and Novel Functions and Biomarkers for Vitamins and Minerals.

Approach:
UC Davis will support clinical studies conducted in the WHNRC by employing full and part time technical and medical personnel required to accomplish the proposed research. These include, but are not limited to, an Assistant Project Scientist(s), and/or an equivalent candidate(s) to provide project management and advanced statistical data analysis of human studies and metabolomics analysis. These collaborating technical and scientific staff will provide a variety of support including: dietary analysis, project management, analytical chemistry, and statistical data analysis.
