ABOUT THE DEPARTMENT
Established in 1913, the department of nutrition has a long and respected history nationally and internationally.
Because the science of nutrition has changed since its inception, modern nutritional biochemistry can now help examine the outcome of nutrients in various organ systems. In turn, current research is applied on creating artificial nutrients which will assist in the treatment of nutritional as well as metabolic diseases.
Our teaching and research faculty investigate a broad spectrum of nutrition and/or metabolic science issues as you will note throughout this site.
Any student whose interests span the fields of health, life sciences, engineering, computer sciences, management or behavioral science should consider a degree program in nutrition.
The Nutrition Training Program at Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine is inter-disciplinary in all aspects of metabolic processes.
