Micronutrients


Dr Krebs with Guatemalan FamilyOur nutrition faculty are exploring micronutrient requirements (especially zinc and iron) in women and infants. Currently, we are conducting interventions which are examining the effects of nutrition on the enteric microbiome and interventions specifically for the prevention of micronutrient deficiencies. We also have expertise in the development of methodology for both elemental and isotope ratio analyses of several mineral elements. Micronutrient requirements & deficiencies are currently being studied in Iron and Zinc
