The UAB Department of Nutrition Sciences is a global leader in nutrition and lifestyle research and education. Our faculty conduct leading-edge research on diet and exercise in order to treat and prevent chronic diseases such as obesity, diabetes, and cancer. We translate the science of nutrition and lifestyle into real-world programs and initiatives that improve people’s health and well-being.

We are proud to have two major NIH-funded research centers – the Nutrition Obesity Research Center and the Diabetes Research Center – within our department. With a mixture of in-classroom and online courses, our master’s and PhD programs are training the next generation of nutrition researchers, educators, dietitians, and practitioners.
