Global Health Nutrition Lab

The Global Nutrition Lab focuses on high-impact research relating to malnutrition among women, children, adolescents, and vulnerable communities in low- and middle-income countries. While the lab primarily focus on undernutrition, our team is also addressing the growing challenge of overweight, obesity, and nutrition-associated chronic diseases worldwide.

The Global Nutrition Lab includes extramurally funded research and peer-review publications in three priority areas:

  1. Maternal, child and adolescent nutrition
  2. Cycle between malnutrition and infection
  3. Implementation science in global nutrition
