Our Mission

Our Mission is to serve as a nexus for transdisciplinary research in a wide range of areas (including human evolution, genomics, metabolomics, lipidomics, proteomics, nutrition, lifestyles, data science, and applied health) and facilitate the creation of new conceptual, methodological, and translational innovations in the area of precision nutrition and wellness.

We Envision 

These advancements will be accomplished by diverse teams of investigators at UA (along with their local, national, and international collaborators) and strategically placed administrative and research personnel and post-doctoral fellows. This in turn will lead to substantive increases in the UA portfolio of grant funding from a variety of federal agencies (NIH, USDA & NSF) and foundations.
