UC Davis Health Clinical Studies

USDA Nutritional Phenotyping Study

Discover the relationship between what you eat and your unique metabolism

The USDA-Agriculture Research Service, Western Human Nutrition Research Center (WHNRC) is seeking both MEN and WOMEN to participate in a cross-sectional research study examining a number of processes going on in the body in order to characterize the 'metabolic phenotypes' of healthy people in the general population. These processes include: • Production of key hormones • Metabolism of fats, proteins, and carbohydrates • Immune system functions • Cardiovascular health We will examine blood, urine, saliva, stool, and breath in order to get a whole body assessment. In addition, we also assess lifestyle characteristics such as diet, exercise, stress, sleep and tobacco use. We hope to discover new factors or combinations of factors that might serve as indicators of health.
