Request for Information (RFI): Swallowable Smart Pills or Devices to Enable Precision Nutrition, Microbiome and Gastroenterological Research

The purpose of this Request for Information (RFI) is to solicit public input to inform efforts aimed at advancing the development of and accessibility to devices that enable clinical gastroenterological procedures on awake individuals and research on dietary components-host interactions and gut microbiota ecology in discrete gastrointestinal (GI) regions, with the focus on advancing host-diet microbial interactions.

The information respondents provide will help characterize what technologies are currently available to facilitate the study of discrete regions of the human GI tract as well as identify key priorities and recommendations for future research efforts.
