Mission

The Arkansas Children’s Nutrition Center conducts cutting-edge research to understand how maternal-child nutrition and physical activity optimize health and development. Our research is advanced through multi-disciplinary, team-based research that examine biology and child development at a very fundamental, molecular level (cell signaling and energetics, changes in the metabolome, epigenome, and gut microbiota) while in parallel to consider in clinical studies how these factors impact whole-body physiology, body composition, brain neurodevelopment and behavior.
The Arkansas Children's Nutrition Center is located in Little Rock, AR and is part of the Southeast Area.
The Area Director is Archie Tucker.
