The Nutrition Studies Research Group is a strong and growing component of the Stanford Prevention Research Center. Our current research focuses directly on nutrition intervention studies. We aim to expand nutrition research beyond traditional nutrients and phytochemicals to focus more on dietary patterns, and beyond traditional outcome measures like cholesterol to include more recently-established risk factors for disease such as inflammatory markers and DNA-methylation. Dietary strategies for weight loss are also a topic of research interest.
