The JPI HDHL is going to launch a new joint transnational call for research proposals: “Intestinal Microbiomics”. The main objective is to support multidisciplinary transnational research consortia using innovative and scientific approaches to increase knowledge on the effects of diet on human intestinal microbiota and the impact of diet-related variations in the intestinal microbiota on human health and/or the development of non-communicable chronic diseases.
The overall vision is to develop dietary interventions or guidance for modulation of the intestinal microbiome to promote health and/or prevent the development of non-communicable chronic diseases. The program should generate new knowledge to support health maintenance and/or new treatments.
Call time schedule:
The call is scheduled to be launched on the 19th of March 2015.
The deadline for submission of the pre-proposal is scheduled for the 28th of April 2015.
The deadline for submission of the full proposal is scheduled for the 1st of September 2015.
