The Department of Nutrition is currently recognized as a global leader in research and training, and is unique in that it is the only one in the U.S. that is situated in both a school of public health and a school of medicine. We engage in innovative work that capitalizes on both these schools’ historical approaches to health, and thus our department has an unusual breadth of scientific and policy... approaches, literally spanning from cell to society, moving from discovery to delivery. The work of department faculty and students is carried out throughout North Carolina and spans the globe to communities and populations in China, India, Malawi, Spain and The Philippines, to name a few. Our ultimate goal is to find solutions and produce research and intervention techniques that improve the health of people everywhere. Our faculty train students in nutritional sciences, clinical nutrition and public health to become global leaders and policy makers in their fields. They participate in a broad range of research in the physiological, biochemical, and behavioral aspects of nutrition and their respective practical applications. Our areas of focus are balanced by a commitment to research that improves the health of minority and underserved global populations.
