JPI HDHL is pleased to announce the launch of the 2nd non-cofunded action under ERA-HDHL in the emerging field of nutrition & epigenetics.

A more complete understanding of the relationships between nutrition and health is central to deliver the vision of the JPI HDHL. However, even with modern genomics research and current dietary assessment methods, it is challenging to identify the key mechanisms by which diet influences health, and to establish causal relationships and predict outcomes. Investigating the fine regulation of genes, epigenetics, could provide the missing link.
The aim of this call is to support transnational, collaborative research projects that gain a better understanding of the diet- epigenome relationships and their effect on human health.

Time line
The launch of the new call is planned on 6th February 2018. Research proposals can be submitted until 12th April 2018.
