Grant Details


The objective of this continuation application for a Clinical Nutrition
Research Unit is to develop a coherent program in nutrition for the
purposes of advancing multidisciplinary clinical and laboratory research,
increasing the level of nutrition teaching for medical students, physicians
and other health professionals, and improving the nutrition of patients at
Vanderbilt Medical Center and the public in general. The Vanderbilt CNRU has become the major resource for clinical nutrition as
related to patient care, teaching and research at Vanderbilt University
Medical Center. It serves as the only mechanism for coordinating the basic
research generated in the nationally recognized Division of Nutrition in
the Department of Biochemistry with Clinical Departments. Seven components are being developed in this collaborative program. These
components are: 1. Research with human subjects and populations;
2. Laboratory Investigations;
3. Research Training;
4. Shared research facilities and services;
5. Education programs for medical students, housestaff, practicing
physicians and other health care professionals;
6. Nutrition Support Services;
7. Public information services. Although direct support is provided only for research activities, the CNRU
staff have developed support mechanisms for initiation and maintenance of
each of the remaining components of the CNRU. Each of the CNRU components
have demonstrated excellence. The plan proposed in this application will
continue to expand research, education and patient care at Vanderbilt.
