Mission Statement

The mission of the Division of Nutrition Research Coordination (DNRC) is to coordinate nutritional sciences-related research and research training across the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and among Federal Agencies by providing mechanisms to communicate research, research training, policy, and education initiatives. The DNRC facilitates the exchange of information, coordinates workshops and seminars on critical issues, encourages national and international research collaborations, and serves as the NIH primary point of contact for the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) and other agencies, departments, and organizations in matters pertaining to nutritional sciences and physical activity. Through its dedicated efforts to promote scientific policy reviews, innovative research, interagency collaboration, and technical advancements, the DNRC strives to define the increasing roles of nutritional sciences and physical activity in health promotion and disease prevention and treatment.
