Centre for Research on Wellness and Nutrition (CROWN)
Data for better understanding of wellness and disease is often lacking. CROWN aims to identify and fill critical data gaps in our understanding of wellness, including mental health, and its determinants. Prospective cohorts, non-communicable diseases, and management of wellness via nutrition, wearables, and digital health services are of particular interest. Some of the ongoing efforts are:
- Development of cohorts from preventive screening subjects, studying life-course of low birthweight children and nutritional strategies to minimize adverse consequences.
Collaborative partner – Delhi University, funded by India Alliance.
- Observational studies using continuous glucose monitoring to understand differential glycemic response to foods.
- Observational studies using wearable digital devices to measure health, determine lifestyle contributors, and study effectiveness of interventions such as yoga and meditation.
