The well-known  slicing problem in Convex Geometry asks whether there exists an absolute constant $c$ so that for every origin-symmetric convex body $K$  of volume 1 there is a hyperplane section of $K$ whose $(n − 1)$-dimensional volume is greater than $c$. Motivated by a question  of Alexander Koldobsky, we are studying a similar  slicing problem (and related problems) when the volume functional is  replaced by the lattice point enumerator.
