Research Project: Research Partnership with the University of the District of Columbia

Location: Diet, Genomics and Immunology Laboratory

Project Number: 8040-51530-057-01-N
Project Type: Non-Funded Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: Sep 1, 2014
End Date: Aug 31, 2019

Objective:
To foster the collaboration between Beltsville Human Nutrition Research Center (BHNRC) and the Nutrition Department, University of the District of Columbia (UDC) by pooling strengths and resources to develop new knowledge and expertise and train the next generation of agricultural scientists.

Approach:
This NFCA is to formalize and expand the relationship between BHNRC and the Cooperator (UDC), which share an interest in research, nutrition, agriculture, and related fields. The two institutions have different, but complementary research expertise and facilities, and their geographic proximity makes it feasible for BHNRC scientists to participate in UDC graduate and undergraduate programs, by providing research and training opportunities in BHNRC labs to faculty and students.
