ABOUTThe Boston Nutrition Obesity Research Center (BNORC) is a consortium of institutions -- BMC, Tufts Medical Center and the USDA Human Nutrition Research Center on Aging, the Harvard School of Public Health, and three Harvard Hospitals, the Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH), Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, and Brigham and Women's Hospital.
Our Cores, Pilot and Feasibility Program and annual programs, retreat, seminars and workshops promote inter- and multi-disciplinary research in nutrition and obesity.
Our Center is organized to address four cross-cutting themes that represent key gaps in understanding the relationship between nutrition and health, and the pathogenesis of obesity and its associated metabolic diseases.
Key areas of nutrition and obesity research across these themes are facilitated and fostered by BNORC Cores:
