Human and Clinical Nutrition

Students and faculty in this training group examine the mechanisms controlling nutrient or phytochemical metabolism, defining diet-disease relationships, and understanding the basis for food selection. These researchers conduct translational research that extends the more basic research. They utilize human subjects and animal models and depend upon the sciences of physiology and biochemistry. This work is often directly applicable in clinical practice or in public health.
