MyNewGut
 
MyNewGut (Microbiome's influence on energy balance and brain development/function put into action to tackle diet-related diseases and behaviour) is an FP7 project researching how the human gut microbiota and its genome (microbiome) influence obesity, behavioural- and lifestyle-related disorders and vice versa. It also aims to identify specific dietary strategies to improve the long-term health of the population.

The general objectives of the project are to:

  • Expand knowledge of the contribution of the human microbiome to nutrient metabolism and energy balance.
  • Identify microbiome-related features that contribute to or predict obesity and associated disorders.
  • Understand how the gut microbiome, under the influence of environmental factors, plays a role in the brain, metabolic and immune system development in early life and long-term health consequences.
  • Provide proof-of-concepts of the disease risk and reduction potential of dietary interventions with new food products and ingredients that target the gut microbiome, in humans.

The ETP 'Food for Life' is a member of the User Advisory Board, which, together with the Scientific Advisory Board, help maximising the output of the MyNewGut project by acting as consultative platforms and disseminator of MyNewGut results.
