Research study seeking volunteers

November 21, 2016 — 

The Manitoba Personalized Lifestyle Research (TMPLR) program is looking for volunteers for the next phase of their ambitious study, which is examining how genetics and lifestyle interact to shape the health of Manitobans.

Led by University of Manitoba researchers Drs. Peter Jones and Meghan Azad, the study brings together a team of scientists and health care professionals to understand how microorganisms in our bodies, genetics, and lifestyle – such as diet, activity and sleep – interact to shape our health. The knowledge gained will lead to personalized health information and recommendations that will benefit the current and future health of Manitobans.


Research at the University of Manitoba is partially supported by funding from the Government of Canada Research Support Fund.
