Nutrition for Precision
Project: Nutrition for Precision powered by the All of Us Study
Grant Number: National Institute for Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases UG1 H107692
Current USDA Dietary Guidelines are based on evidence representative of the US population and offer recommendations for dietary patterns by life stage, yet they explicitly emphasize that population-level approaches must be adapted to meet individuals’ specific needs. The need for more precise nutrition advice is widely recognized, yet specific differences in genetic, epigenetic, microbiome, and phenotypic drivers of individual variability to diet are not well known. Nutrition for precision health holds tremendous promise, but the field is in its infancy, and much is to be learned. This project will enable major progress in the field of precision nutrition by addressing the critical need to understand variability in physiologic responses to diet, anchored by the theme of inflammation as a driver of many chronic disease processes.
