Message from the Co-Director

The UNC Nutrition Obesity Research Center (NORC) provides support and expertise to scientists studying the role of nutrition and obesity in public health.

Our center is one of 11 centers in the country funded by the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases that is specifically designed to enhance the efficiency, productivity, effectiveness and multidisciplinary nature of nutrition and obesity-related research. The goals of the UNC NORC are to:

  • Provide resources and support to investigators conducting multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary research in nutritional sciences and obesity;
  • Enhance the impact and presence of nutrition and obesity research at UNC;
  • Strengthen clinical nutrition training programs for medical students, practicing physicians and allied health personnel; and
  • Translate findings from obesity and nutrition research to the general public to use to improve their overall health and well-being.
