Nutrition Obesity Research Centers

The Nutrition Obesity Research Centers (NORC) program supports research infrastructure, including research services, enrichment programs, and collaborative activities, at an academic/medical institution or consortium of institutions, to foster interdisciplinary basic, clinical, and public health research.  Center programs are expected to bring together established and new investigators who are actively conducting high-quality research programs related to common nutritional sciences and/or obesity theme(s).  NORCs are aimed at improving the quality and multidisciplinary nature of research in nutritional sciences and/or obesity by providing shared access to specialized technical resources and expertise.  The NORC program ultimately strengthens and provides cost-effective research resources to multidisciplinary groups at institutions with an established, comprehensive research base in nutritional sciences and/or obesity and related areas.
