Foundational Projects

The priority for year one of PenNSAM is supporting foundational projects designed to significantly advance knowledge of mechanisms involved in the health effects of diet and nutrition. These studies will have large effects sizes, be technically feasible and cost effective. Examples of such projects include metabolomic responses to controlled feeding of healthy and unhealthy diets, the metabolic and behavioral effects of bariatric surgery and the neurocognitive effects of ketogenic diets.
