Our three-year program was designed to align with the goals and objectives of the National Institutes of Health’s National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences.
Our graduates obtain the skills needed to perform bench-to-bedside-to-community research that advances the field of nutrition to improve human health. Included in the curriculum are courses in translational nutrition methodologies including laboratory analyses, advanced clinical nutrition, metabolic and dietary assessment techniques, and implementation and community-based participatory research methods. As a student, you would develop a research plan based on your interests that culminates in the dissertation.
