Message from the Chair


There has never been a more exciting time to be a part of nutrition-based initiatives and research.   From school lunches and gardens to the molecular basis of nutrition in cancer, obesity, immune response and development, our department covers the gamut of nutrition interests.

A crucial element of our mission is the inclusion of superlative scientists and students from diverse backgrounds and traditions.

As an undergraduate, you have the opportunity to participate in cutting-edge research through our Nutrition Honors programs, as well as to work toward your certification as a registered dietitian through our professional training programs. 

As a graduate student, you will work with leading researchers working on the nutritional underpinnings of a host of metabolic diseases. Our work includes translational research at its very best, as we learn new concepts that can be directly tested and/or applied in field and clinical settings. 

We look forward to helping you develop your skills and knowledge in nutrition practice and research!

Molly S. Bray
