NIFA Partners with NIH, Funds Two Multidisciplinary Dietary Biomarker Development Centers

Adopting and maintaining healthy dietary habits and dietary patterns are crucial for preventing and delaying the onset of a variety of chronic diseases. There is a critical need for validated objective markers of dietary intake to measure the effectiveness of interventions that promote a healthy diet. The National Institutes of Health (NIH) and USDA’s National Institute of Food and Agriculture (NIFA) are supporting research developing metabolomics-based dietary intake biomarkers. In FY2021, NIFA funded two multidisciplinary Dietary Biomarker Development Centers, investing $1 million/year each for a 5-year period: University of California, Davis; Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center.
