Graduate Study. The Graduate Group in Nutritional Biology offers programs of study and research leading to the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees. The great diversity of research interests represented by the faculty members allows students to choose from a wide variety of themes: nutritional biochemistry, animal nutrition, nutrition and development, nutrient bioavailability, human/clinical nutrition, nutrition and behavior, nutritional energetics, community nutrition, community health, maternal and child nutrition, nutrition and endocrinology, international nutrition, obesity/body composition, physiology of digestion, nutrition and chronic disease, culture and nutrition, nutrition and gene expression, nutrition and aging, food preferences, nutrition and immunity, diet and exercise, dietary assessment, protein and lipid metabolism, food intake regulation, nutrition education, and more.

Graduate Advisors. Consult the Nutritional Biology Graduate Group office.
