PhD students engaging in research in a lab.

The PhD in Nutrition Science at UAB provides training and research experiences in basic and translational nutrition science. You will have the opportunity work alongside experts in the field and in two NIH-funded research centers.

As a student in the PhD program you will learn the science of nutrition as it relates to maintaining the health of individuals and populations, as well as the biochemical basis and application of nutrition to promote health and prevent disease. Possible areas of study include experimental design, nutritional biochemistry, energy requirements, body composition, geriatric nutrition, community nutrition, and disease prevention.
