Project Description

The research is relevant to public health because it investigates a new and alternative strategy to understanding the potential mechanistic link between diet and bladder dysfunction through epigenetic modifications (changed in behaviors and environment) in lower urinary tract dysfunction (LUTD). LUTD is an understudied disorder with high prevalence in African countries, and this research could open up new directions for possible public health impact and other management strategies.
