Purpose

The purpose of this Notice is to inform potential applicants that the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine (NCCAM) will participate in PAR-13-375 "Nutrigenetics and Nutrigenomics Approaches for Nutrition Research (R01)."  NCCAM’s interests are restricted to the study of dietary supplements and botanicals, especially as they contribute to health maintenance. Examples of the application of nutrigenetics and nutrigenomics approaches to dietary supplement and botanical research of interest to NCCAM include but are not limited to:

•Impact of genetic polymorphisms on botanical and dietary supplement absorption, transport and metabolism
•Impact of botanical and dietary supplements on gene expression that affect absorption, transport and metabolism in target tissues
•Mechanisms by which specific dietary supplements and probiotics modulate intestinal physiology (transporters), barrier function, inflammation, and/or microbiome composition
•Mechanisms by which nutrient sensing in the gut is transduced to extra- intestinal organs and tissues
•Studies that explore the interaction/competition between various dietary supplements and nutrients for their absorption, transport, metabolism and elimination
•Studies that explore the interaction/competition between various dietary supplements, botanicals and drugs for their absorption, transport, metabolism and elimination
•Impact of nutrient excess and deficiency in health maintenance
•Impact of prebiotics and resistant starches on intestinal function and host metabolism, and
•Impact of probiotics and secreted probiotic factors on intestinal function and host metabolism
