Diet Related Inflammation and Kidney Function Decline in Racial/Ethnic Minorities

Project: Research project

Project Details

Description

PROJECT NARRATIVE
This research proposal will improve our understanding of the relationship between dietary pattern and
inflammation, and its impact on kidney function decline among racial/ethnic minorities. The results of these
studies could inform novel dietary approaches to mitigate chronic kidney risk and progression, and address a
major health disparity. At the end of this mentored research period, Dr. Johns will have developed the skills
and expertise necessary to successfully transition into research independence with a focus on reducing health
disparities in chronic kidney disease. (3 sentences; limit 3 sentences)
