  Thursday, 21 Apr 2022 | Funding Deadline

“Nutrition-responsiveness of the immune system: interplay between infectious diseases and diet-related metabolic diseases and the potential for food-based solutions (NUTRIMMUNE)”. Apply for funding to better understand the direct relationship between nutrition, immune function and infectious diseases relating to diet-related metabolic disorders.

The aim of this call is to support transnational, collaborative research projects that gain a better understanding of the interactions between nutrition and immunity within the context of its interplay between infectious diseases and diet-related metabolic diseases. Research in this area is expected to provide insights that allow the development and scientific substantiation of intervention strategies for sustaining good health through all life stages and treating nutrition-related diseases.

Proposals should focus on one or both of the following topics:

  • Establishing the cause-and-effect relationship between nutrition, immune function and infectious diseases in the context of diet-related metabolic disorders.
  • Development of innovative food solutions.

Deadline for proposals: 21 April 2022
