Biochemical and Molecular Nutrition

Students and faculty in this training group are interested in examining the mechanisms controlling nutrient or phytochemical metabolism or defining diet-disease relationships. These researchers utilize cell culture and animal models and depend upon the basic sciences of cell biology, molecular biology, physiology, and biochemistry. This work provides the foundation for future, more applied studies that lead to improved dietary practices, or the use of nutrition in the treatment of disease.
