The Nutrition Research Institute is committed to conducting innovative basic and translational science studying how individual differences in requirements and responses to diet affect our individual nutritional needs. We believe that our advances in nutrition science are leading to successes in preventing or mitigating the negative effects of chronic diseases and aging and in improving human development, even prior to conception.

Vision: Our vision is to use scientific discovery to ensure optimal health through individualized nutrition.

Mission: To enhance understanding of health and human development through greater knowledge of how genetic, epigenetic, and metabolic mechanisms affect people’s requirements for and responses to nutrition.
