Food and Nutritional Immunology

Nutritional, Food and Immunology program is one of the immerging research at understanding how nutritional factors influence the immunological  responses, and regulating health and disease outcomes.

Latest research looks to reverse delay or onset of these immunologic and age-related changes by appropriate dietary modifications and to determine the molecular mechanisms by which nutrients modulate immune cell functions. New Strategies are being developed to use the immunological response as a biologically meaningful index in determining specific dietary requirements.

The present research proposal uses a unique approach to:

Study cellular and molecular mechanisms of age and nutrition-induced changes in immune and inflammatory responses. Determine the efficacy of food components including total calories, lipids, micronutrients such as vitamin E, and zinc, as well as flavonoids such as those in green tea and wolfberry, and prebiotics and probiotics on improving the immune function on dampening the inflammatory responses using cell culture, animal models and clinical trials. Determine the efficacy of food components such as micronutrients and phytochemicals in the prevention of infectious, autoimmune and chronic diseases in animal models, clinical trials and observational studies in worldwide and less developed countries.
Determine the life-long impact of obesity and reducing caloric intake on immune response and resistance to infection.Investigate the impact of nutrition during fetal life on long-life resistance to immune and inflammatory diseases.
