On the 19th of March 2015 the JPI HDHL launches a transnational call for research proposals on Intestinal Microbiomics.
The main objective of the Joint Action “Intestinal Microbiomics” is to support multidisciplinary transnational research consortia using innovative and scientific approaches to increase knowledge on:
- The short-term and long-term functional effects of diet, dietary patterns and dietary constituents on human intestinal microbiota.
- The functional impact of diet-related variations in the intestinal microbiota on human health and/or the development of non-communicable chronic disease.
The overall vision is to develop dietary interventions or guidance for modulation of the intestinal microbiome to promote health and/or prevent the development of non-communicable chronic diseases. The program should generate new knowledge to support health maintenance and/or new treatments.
