Well-trained students with strong mentorship are our future leaders and innovators. Whether working from a behavioral, clinical, molecular or basic research perspective, our students from across campus are an integral part of the Foods for Health initiative.

Foods for Health will provide students from multiple disciplines with opportunities to interact with each other and with industry and community leaders with sponsored events, poster sessions, internships and career services. Team-taught interdisciplinary course(s) in metabolomics will provide additional opportunities for collaborative teaching and learning.

Current USDA National Needs Fellowships available in the area of human health and nutrition:

Metabolomics Across the Food System

Multidiscipline Training of Doctoral Students in Food & Nutrition Targeting Obesity to Prevent Cancer
