Metabolomics signatures underlying diet, lifestyle and gut microbiota for diabetes

Project: Research project

Project Details

Description

Public Health Relevance T2D has become a major public health challenge but understanding of its pathophysiology remains incomplete. Metabolomics profiling focuses on small molecules that are proximal to genetic and molecular processes of T2D, which may provide new insight into the role of diet, lifestyle, and gut microbiota in the prevention of T2D. This will be the first large-scale study to link diet, lifestyle, and gut microbiota with plasma metabolites in relation to T2D in both Hispanics and non-Hispanics. Because many of these metabolites and their associated pathways may be suitable for direct intervention through diet, lifestyle, and other intervention strategies (e.g., gut microbiota modulation), this study will have important public health implications.
