JEAN MAYER HUMAN NUTR. RES CTR
711 WASHINGTON ST., TUFTS UNIV
Boston, MA 02111

Mission:
The mission is to explore the relationship between nutrition, aging, and health. The interaction between nutrition and the onset and progression of aging and associated degenerative conditions is of special concern. The research focuses on the best approaches to maintain well-being; delay the onset and progressive loss of tissue function; and prevent major degenerative conditions associated with the aging process. Scientists conduct cell and molecular biology, animal model, and human metabolic and field studies to further their understanding of the processes of nutrient utilization and metabolism and to determine ways by which diet, in combination with genetic and environmental factors like exercise, may promote health and vigor over the life span.
