Changes in DNA methylation in people with type-2 diabetes over a period of weight loss
This project uses stored blood samples from previous weight loss studies. Given the importance of genes in complex disease, and the key role these mechanisms play in the interaction between environmental influences and genetics we are investigating whether DNA methylation changes over time with dietary intervention and associated weight-loss.
The Garden to Table Evaluation
The Garden to Table organisation introduces vegetable gardening and cooking into New Zealand primary schools. This project aims to evaluate the programme in four low decile Wellington schools to ascertain whether it improves the nutritional quality of children’s diets, nutrition knowledge and willingness to try new foods.
