Biochemical and Molecular Nutrition


The biochemical nutrition research program focuses on the utilization of molecular, cellular and physiological techniques to investigate nutrient function and metabolism in health and chronic disease prevention. Approaches ranging from the whole animal to cell culture are employed. Areas of emphases include nutrient bioavailability, vitamin A, Sphingolipid and zinc functions, phytochemicals and cancer prevention, and neuroendocrine regulation of energy metabolism.
