My laboratory has long-standing interest in how nutritional supplements may influence health and disease outcomes. Specifically, we are interested in understanding molecular mechanisms by which specific nutritional supplements influence health outcomes related stroke, obesity, diabetes and wound healing. At present several studies are in progress ranging from the study of cells in vitro to clinical trials. What I bring to the proposed center is expertise in functional genomics and translational research. As Editor of the leading journal (Antioxidants & Redox Signaling) on antioxidants, my expertise in the field of oxidant and antioxidant biology should be helpful to the Center. The proposed center will hopefully serve as a point of convergence of all expertise in campus related to food sciences. This will help develop novel programmatic initiatives.
