Center for Human Nutrition, Johns Hopkins University
Welcome to the Johns Hopkins Center for Human Nutrition. Founded in 1990, our Center is based at the Department of International Health at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. Our location at the largest school of public health in the world and our close ties to a premier school of medicine confer us great advantage. There are many opportunities for collaboration and for moving scientific findings into the real world of disease prevention and health promotion. Our research agenda encompasses many topics, but public health relevance and applications is a common thread. So is the global reach of the majority of our research.ᅠ
Center for Human Nutrition, University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center, Dallas
There is compelling evidence that the science of nutrition offers humanity a way to achieve a better quality of life. Nutrition provides ways not only of treating but preventing illness, whether derived from genetic or environmental sources. In view of this, a Center for Human Nutrition was established at The University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center through the creation of an endowment fund for UT Southwestern to use in developing a program to "place the entire field of nutrition on a firm scientific foundation."
Columbia University: College of Physicians and Surgeons, Nutrition Curriculum
The College of Physicians and Surgeons of Columbia University was one of eight medical schools nationally to receive funding from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation's Program "Preparing physicians for the future. A Program in Medical Education." Our new curriculum, completed in 1997, has been created around longitudinally integrated four-year long tracks in basic sciences, population sciences, social and behavioral sciences and clinical sciences. In addition to a tradition of strength in basic science there is emphasis on health promotion, disease prevention and behavioral medicine. Nutrition is recognized as one of these four year themes. To help identify areas relevant to nutrition, one of the goals of the Nutrition web page is to highlight the specific nutrition content throughout the curriculum....

Institute of Human Nutrition, Columbia University
As we leave the twentieth century, nutrition is increasingly being recognized as a major modulator of human development and function and disease prevention. Major gaps exist in our understanding of the mechanisms whereby nutritional regulatory processes occur. The program outlined herein describes plans to help fill these gaps through research in molecular nutrition, biochemistry, physiology, cell biology, and nutritional epidemiology and public health.
