California Commission Funds Faculty’s Dietary Research


The California Table Grape Commission awarded a grant to Dr. Jeffrey Idle, Endowed Professor and Director of the Division of Systems Pharmacology and Pharmacogenomics, and Dr. Diren Beyoglu, Associate Director and Associate Professor of Systems Pharmacology and Pharmacogenomics. Dr. Idle and Dr. Beyoglu will investigate the biological effects of a table grape diet on human metabolism and compare it to a grape-free diet in order to reveal the biological processes that underlie the benefits of a healthy diet containing table grapes.
