About the IBRC
The Center integrates sophisticated analyses of the physiological, nutritional, developmental, genetic, sensory, socio-economic, and experiential determinants of food and fluid intake with the rigorous assessment of appetitive and consummatory behaviors in human and nonhuman animal models.
The Ingestive Behavior Research Center (IBRC) was organized at Purdue University to promote and coordinate interdisciplinary collaborations among laboratories that investigate the environmental and biological controls of food and fluid intake.
Symposium on Flavor and Feeding
The 4th biennial IBRC international symposium hosted 25 renowned presenters who spoke on the topic of "Flavor and Feeding" at the Purdue University campus on September 21-23, 2011. The proceedings will be published in Physiology & Behavior in Fall 2012. We thank The NIH, Phyllis Izant and The Office of the Vice President for Research at Purdue University for supporting the conference.
The students and faculty members of the IBRC participate in many common activities, including seminars, symposia, journal clubs, and a core curriculum for graduate training. The emphasis on interdisciplinary graduate education and the availability of shared, state-of-the-art, facilities and resources set the stage for a wide variety of individual and collaborative research endeavors that are aimed at advancing understanding of the controls of ingestive behavior.
Undergraduate, graduate, and postdoctoral training are available.
