Boston Nutrition Obesity Research Center

The Boston Nutrition Obesity Research Center (BNORC), funded by the National Institutes of Health, NIDDK, is a consortium of institutions -- BMC, Tufts Medical Center and the USDA Human Nutrition Research Center on Aging, the Harvard School of Public Health, and three Harvard Hospitals, the Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH), Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, and Brigham and Women’s Hospital.

Our Cores, Pilot and Feasibility Program and annual programs, retreat, seminars and workshops promote inter- and multi-disciplinary research in nutrition and obesity.

Our Center is organized to address four cross-cutting themes that respresent key gaps in understanding the relationship between nutrition and health, and the pathogenesis of obesity and its associated metabolic diseases.

Key areas of nutrition and obesity research across these themes are facilitated and fostered by BNORC Cores:






The Boston Nutrition Obesity Research Center is administratively based at Boston Medical Center and is funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH/NIDDK) grant 2P30DK046200. All publications resulting from the utilization of BNORC resources are required to cite this grant in their NIH Funding Acknowledgement and must comply with NIH Public Access Policy.
