Two new grants for Dr. Corri Hanson

The Center for Patient, Family, and Community Engagement in Chronic Care Management (CENTRIC) at UNMC funded a proposal, “Fiber Intake and the Microbiome in Asthma: the BREATHE Easy Trial,” from Corri Hanson, PhD, associate professor in medical nutrition education. Her team will analyze the microbiome, short-chain fatty acid production, inflammatory biomarkers and pro-resolving mediators in the BREATHE-Easy trial.

Dr. Hanson also received a grant from the Soy Health Research Program for a proposal titled, “Gut-Lung Crosstalk: Impact of Dietary Fiber and Soy on Systemic Inflammation among COPD Patients.”

Congratulations, Dr. Hanson!
