The National Center for Minority Health and Health Disparities (NCMHD) Center of Excellence for Nutritional Genomics
The NCMHD Center of Excellence for Nutritional Genomics — a collaboration between five university departments, research institutes and hospitals — publishes news, information and commentary on research that cuts across nutrition, genomics, and health. It also provides a list of definitions, image library and links to relevant sites and users can sign-up to receive email alerts of the latest news in nutrigenomics.
The centre's research focuses on genomics, proteomics and bioinformatics to identify genes that might affect health risks from a poor diet. Its goal is to devise genome-based nutritional interventions to prevent or treat diseases such as asthma, obesity, and diabetes.
