UNC Nutrition
Research Institute

What if you could go to your doctor and get a customized description of what you should — and shouldn’t — eat? The UNC Nutrition Research Institute (UNC NRI) is providing the resources that will enable health providers to replace generic, one-size-fits-all nutrition guidelines with personalized recommendations for optimized health and well-being.

A leader in the precision nutrition space, UNC NRI is discovering how to personalize nutrition guidelines, because each of us is unique in our body's needs. Our revolutionary research aims to improve human health — for all kind — at all stages of life.
