Research & Outreach

The Department of Nutrition Science is a vital contributor of research, linking nutrition to disease prevention. The department concentrates its research into Signature Areas which inform future planning, guide the direction of resources, and shape the hiring of faculty.

Transmission of research findings and education of the public is also an essential function of our department. Through outreach, we put knowledge to work to create new opportunities that advance our society and solve nutrition-related problems. Our engagement efforts concentrate on helping consumers to understand and evaluate nutrition and food safety information, and provide research-based information to industry professionals.
