Disease Mechanisms: Microbiome and diet (Milestone 2.X)

Support research to evaluate the role of the microbiome on the impact of diet on AD risk/resilience.

Success Criteria

  • Initiate at least one research program aimed at understanding the mechanisms by which the microbiome influences the impact of diet on AD risk/resilience. The program should include the development of methods/technologies to directly assess dietary intake from a patient specimen based on microbiome or metabolome readout(s).

Summary of Key Accomplishments

This milestone has yet to be initiated. Accomplishments are forthcoming.

This information is current as of July 2022.
