Administration and Faculty

Faculty working with the Center for Human Nutrition can all be classified as clinical investigators, but make use of approaches extending from intensive interaction with patients to high-technology molecular biology. This amalgam of talent and collaboration creates a clinical-research team that is rare in academic medical centers, and makes possible fundamental new insights into the causation of nutritionally-related chronic diseases – as well as teaching our students how to do the same.
