Dr. DeckelbaumThe program outlined herein describes plans to help fill these gaps through research in molecular nutrition, biochemistry, physiology, cell biology, nutritional epidemiology and public health. These plans take advantage of the fact that the Columbia Health Sciences campus is an extraordinary resource for students of nutrition. A tremendous amount of research in all fields of biomedicine and public health takes place on this campus. The Institute, as part of this enterprise, interacts with investigators in many fields and is able to give students access to the complete range of laboratories conducting research relevant to nutrition. At the same time, research by Institute faculty brings the field of nutrition ever closer to biomedical science as well as all medical and many public health fields, all represented at Columbia.

We invite you to spend a few moments with us as we highlight the multiple training and research oppor tunities available in one of the most exciting places to study, the Institute of Human Nutrition at Columbia University.

Richard J. Deckelbaum, M.D., C.M., Director
