Congratulations to our most recent Registered Dietitian (RDN) - Lynn Cialdella-Kam!

Overview.

The department’s focus is on human nutrition and the application of the science of nutrition to the maintenance and improvement of health. As one of the School of Medicine's Basic Sciences Departments, our mission is to promote the human health through education and research by bridging the gap between medicine and public health.  The department is backed not only by outstanding research facilities, but most importantly by faculty members committed to providing students and researchers a productive integration of applied sciences and basic research.   Historically, the nature of this basic science field and its findings have had, and will continue to have, enormous implications for public health.
