Research Expertise

The Department offers excellence and innovation in teaching, research, and outreach by applying a scientific foundation that links nutrition to disease prevention and public health. Our research spans from cells to communities and the Department is organized into three research clusters:

  • Community Engaged Nutrition ResearchGroup

  • Translational Research Initiative

Research clusters hold joint group meetings and plan seminars, collaborative research proposals, publications, and special events. The Clusters also provide research platforms for graduate students as well as practice opportunities for undergraduate students in Nutrition and Health Science, Dietetics, and Nutrition in A Global Society tracks.
