About the Office

The Division of Nutrition Research Coordination (DNRC) advises the Director of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and others on nutrition research issues and works with the NIH organizational components to coordinate nutrition research and research training initiatives.

The DNRC also represents the NIH and provides liaison at the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) and interagency level on various committees on nutrition research and policy issues such as the Interagency Committee on Human Nutrition Research and Nutrition Policy Board.

Located within the DNRC is the NIH Nutrition Coordinating Committee (NCC) which operates as an NIH-wide forum to review, stimulate, and encourage the support of nutrition research and training to better define the role of nutrition in the promotion and maintenance of health and in the prevention and treatment of disease. The NCC also plays a key role in the development of nutrition research policy at the NIH.

For a description of NIH nutrition research, view the 2011 & 2012 NIH Nutrition Research Report. NIH-sponsored and cosponsored nutrition events are listed on the DNRC Nutrition Calendar.
