Project Title:

European Nutritional Phenotype Database Sharing initiative within the Joint Programme Initiative.

Project Coordinator:

Dr Miriam Ryan

Project Abstract

The present proposal is intended to allow Irish nutritionists (9) participate in two pilot actions of the Joint Programming Initiative “A Healthy Diet for a Healthy Life” (11). Four partners (UCD, UCC, TCD, UU) have developed the National Nutrition Phenotype Database (10) which covers a cross sectional sample of 1,500 adults, an acute intervention study of 214 adults and a follow up study of 5,200 elderly adults osteoporosis, 1,700; cognitive impairment; 2,000 with hypertension). The LIPGENE (2) study involving cross sectional and intervention studies and the UCD twin study will also be included. The first specific objective of the project is up load the databases on to the NuGO nutritional phenotype database (12) and to ensure that the transfer process has not compromised the data. In addition to the data transfer, and in keeping with the JPI HDHL call, (“The applicants recognise that the exact structure of the work proposed in the present application might be altered when the project is integrated into a joint programme initiative as proposed by participating member states”), a second specific objective will be new analyses of these databases to strengthen the hand of Irish researchers in the next phase of this JPI, which will use the shared databases in biomarker discovery
