The National Cancer Institute [NCI]

The National Cancer Institute has multiple interests in nutrigenetic and nutrigenomic-based mechanistic studies including vitamins, minerals and other nutritive agents present in food that reduce the risk of cancer.  Genetic variations present in individuals may alter their susceptibility to cancer. Specific interests include strategies to facilitate precision medicine using nutrition-focused interventions to reduce cancer risks in various populations including those mediated by host-microbiome interactions.

National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health [NCCIH]

The National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health (NCCIH) is particularly interested in nutrigenetic and nutigenomic-based mechanistic studies of interaction and competition between nutrient-nutrient, nutrient-drug, dietary supplements, and probiotics/prebiotics on host-microbial metabolism, immunologic/inflammatory signaling, neuro-hormonal pathways and target tissues [including bioavailability, absorption, transport, metabolism and excretion studies] that impact the basic fundamentals that will eventually lead to a better understanding of the gut brain function in health promotion and disease prevention. NCCIH is also interested in the impact of [selected] nutrient, dietary supplements, the ketogenic diet, and probiotic/prebiotic modulation of specific conditions including pain. In addition, NCCIH is interested in studying mechanisms for how botanical products, fish oil and other dietary supplements, and prebiotics in helping to identify their relationship to  pain and inflammation.
