Elizabeth Mayer-Davis, PhD
Professor and Chair

The Department of Nutrition is currently recognized as a global leader in research and training, and is unique in that it is the only one in the U.S. that is situated in both a school of public health and a school of medicine.

We engage in innovative work that capitalizes on both these schools’ historical approaches to health, and thus our department has an unusual breadth of scientific and policy approaches, literally spanning from cell to society, moving from discovery to delivery. The work of department faculty and students is carried out throughout North Carolina and spans the globe to communities and populations in China, India, Malawi, Spain and The Philippines, to name a few. You can read more about our research strengths here.
