The Walnut Study: Measuring the Changes in Gut Microbiota (bacteria) and Cardiometabolic Biomarkers (cholesterol)

Volunteer for research at UC Davis and contribute to discoveries that may improve health care for you, your family, and your community!

This study will test if eating walnuts will cause any changes in your gut microbiota (bacteria) or blood lipid profiles (cholesterol). We believe that eating walnuts will cause changes in the composition and metabolic activity of the gut microbiota. This can be measured in fecal (stool) samples. We believe that eating walnuts will improve blood lipid profiles and other markers of cardiometabolic health. This is measured in blood and urine samples, and compared to control diet without nuts.

Other study
Any, age 20 to 65 years old

A Study of an After-School Program to Teach Food Literacy in Food, Agriculture, Natural resources, and Human (FANH) sciences.

Volunteer for research at UC Davis and contribute to discoveries that may improve health care for you, your family, and your community!

UC Davis is doing a research study. We are asking you to allow your child to be a part of this research study because they are in the age group we would like to help and are a student at a local school. We would like to learn more about whether a new program helps children learn about nutrition, gardening, and being active. This project will focus on low-income communities. It will expand on existing after-school programs. Adolescents from these communities have higher high school dropout rates. Extracurricular activities, including after-school programs may help. They can improve graduation rates and increase college enrollment. This project plans to educate high school kids in food, agriculture, natural resources, and human (FANH) sciences. We will also motivate them to graduate high school, attend college, and major in FANH sciences. The project will empower adolescents to learn more and be excited about FANH sciences.

Behavioral study
Any, age 9 to 18 years old
