The main goal of this laboratory is to improve knowledge on the role of dietary intake and exercise in obesity, asthma, allergy and inflammation, in a lifecycle approach.
The laboratory has been studying whether dietary intake, Mediterranean Diet and dietary patterns could modulate airway inflammation, asthma control, severity and prevalence, including obesity-asthma phenotype.
The link between diet, environment and allergy has been also addressed and a food allergy program e-intervention was developed to improve literacy at the community.
The main goal includes interlinked research lines to:
- prospectively understand the effect of dietary, exercise and lifestyle exposures on obesity, asthma and food allergy outcomes during lifespan;
- study the impact of combined healthy sustainable dietary, exercise interventions on inflammation, allergy, obesity and asthma, and biomarkers, metabolomic profile and multidimensional health, during lifespan;
- study the effect of chrononutrition interventions in circadian homeostasis and biomarkers of dysmetabolism.
