Researchers work in domains such as metabolic disorders, health promotion/disease prevention, human development/life cycle, ingestive behavior/control of food intake, micronutrient metabolism/function, international nutrition/community nutrition, nutrient-gene interactions/metabolic regulation — and much more.

Penny Kris-Etherton’s studies on nut and avocado consumption and CVD; Xiang Gao’s epidemiological studies; and Connie Rogers’ studies on intake, exercise, and cancer are just a handful of the active research projects that illustrate our broad and deep expertise in Nutritional Sciences.
