Nutrition Obesity Research Centers
The Colorado NORC is one of eleven Nutrition Obesity Research Centers (NORC) across the nation which are funded by the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases. The purpose of these centers is to integrate, coordinate, and foster interdisciplinary basic, clinical and public health research related to nutritional sciences and issues of obesity. 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 research topics.
