Facilities for Graduate Work

The Department of Nutritional Sciences is housed in T.S. Painter Hall, Gearing Hall and in the Dell Pediatric Research Institute. Both buildings house facilities for research and graduate instruction in nutritional sciences including state-of-the-art laboratories for biochemical, immunological, and cellular/molecular biological techniques such as cell and tissue culture, immunological assays, cytokine bioassays, radioisotope analyses, stable isotope analyses, and protein structure and function determination.

Facilities are also available for analysis of vitamins, amino acids, minerals, lipids, carbohydrates, and other substances of nutritional and physiological importance. Local, state, and federal health, child-care, and geriatrics programs provide research and clinical settings.
