gut

The MyNewGut project is a multidisciplinary research consortium designed to make findings in basic human microbiome science useful for promoting healthier lifestyles to the public.

The consortium is led by Dr Yolanda Sanz of the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC). The project brings together 30 partners from 15 countries including experts in microbiology, nutrition, physiology, immunology, brain research, computational modelling and ‘omics’ technologies, such as metagenomics and metabolomics, from EU and non-EU countries.

The MyNewGut Project, which receives funding from the European Union’s Seventh Framework Programme, will research in particular how the microbiota of the human gut (microbiome) and its genome 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.
