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 -- Boston University School of Medicine, Tufts University, the Jean Mayer USDA Human Nutrition Research Center on Aging, the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health and the Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center.

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 cross-cutting themes that represent 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:
