Dr. Nagpal is Assistant Professor of Nutrition, Food & Exercise Sciences in the College of Health and Human Sciences. His research spans around understanding the host-associated microbiome and the dynamics of diet-gut-brain interface at the extremes of aging and in aging-associated metabolic and cognitive health.

Dr. Nagpal’s lab aims to discover novel signatures of gut dysbiosis in host metabolic diseases including obesity and Type-2 diabetes and neuropsychiatric disorders including stress, anxiety and depression, with an aim to explore how microbiome modulation with specific nutritional interventions including dietary elements, micronutrients, probiotics and prebiotics could ameliorate the pathology of these aging-associated disorders.
