Microbiome, Diet and Health Interrelationships Implementation Working Group

The main goal of this working group is to coordinate and promote research on diet-microbiome host interactions. This working group is represented by intramural and extramural NIH scientists with interest in microbiome-host interactions across the lifespan and in relation to disease and treatment. This group aspires to advance a precision nutrition research agenda by better defining diet-microbiome host interrelationships, and by aligning with the trans-NIH microbiome working group and fostering collaborative interactions. Some of the planned activities for the group include facilitation of funding initiatives, organization of workshops, seminar series, grant portfolio analysis and related activities.
