The overall goal of the Precision Nutrition and Wellness Initiative is to become a world leader in precision nutrition and wellness research to help transform sickcare to healthcare.
Utilize advances in genomics, metabolomics, microbiome, health monitoring and machine learning technologies to quantify an individual's state of health, prevent disease, and treat existing conditions.
Optimize the state of health through balancing sleep and stress along with precision nutrition, exercise and lifestyle based on an individual's immune function, cognition, genetics, metabolism and environment.
Design a new healthcare model connecting patient, physician, and researcher for prediction and/or early detection of pathological processes, subsequently facilitating the prevention of disease onset and the optimization of health.
