The New York Obesity Nutrition Research Center (NYONRC) is the oldest National Institutes of Health (NIH) obesity research center, operating in support of $65M per year of peer-reviewed obesity-related research. Through closely integrated core facilities, pilot projects, enrichment, and clinical activities, the center has made major contributions to basic understanding and applied approaches to the problem of obesity. Our goal remains to expand the knowledge base relating to the causes, complications, and treatment of obesity.
NYONRC is supported by the NIH National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive Kidney Diseases (NIDDK), grant # P30 DK026687-39. Please cite this grant support in your publications if you have utilized NYONRC facilities for the research.
