The UAB Department of Nutrition Sciences is the global leader in lifestyle wellness, incorporating nutrition and lifestyle research and education to prevent chronic disease and facilitate optimum health and wellness in everyone. We also translate the science of nutrition and lifestyle into real-world programs and initiatives that improve people’s lifestyle wellness in order to create a happier, healthier world.

We are proud to have two major NIH-funded research centers – the Nutrition Obesity Research Center and the Diabetes Research Center and three NIH-funded T32 training grants – within our department. With a mixture of in-classroom and online courses, our undergraduate, master’s, and PhD programs are training the next generation of nutrition researchers, educators, dietitians, and practitioners.
