We offer both clinical and research fellowship opportunities for physicians
Nutrition – NIH T32 Research Fellowship
Individuals who have completed residency training, PhD or other terminal degree may apply for a research fellowship in nutrition. The objective of this program is to provide research training in the nutritional sciences to physician scientists, basic researchers, and behavioral scientists who are committed to prevention of disease and health promotion through careers in human nutrition.
Nutrition Training Faculty
in the Departments of Pediatrics, Medicine, and Family Medicine, and the Colorado School of Public Health on the Anschutz Medical Campus provide the foundation of nutrition research. Areas of interest include obesity and energy balance; behavioral research related to eating & obesity; health promotion & nutrition education; implementation science; molecular, genetic, and environmental basis of insulin resistance and Type 2 diabetes; micronutrient homeostasis and effects of nutrient deficiency states; global nutrition; maternal and fetal nutrient utilization; fetal origins of adult disease, human aging; and the epidemiology of nutrition-related conditions. Faculty expertise ranges from clinical trials, neuroimaging, tissue, cellular and molecular methodologies to intervention development based on behavioral, physical, and social environmental factors across the life course.
Fellowship support is available for 2 to 3 years of research training through an NIDDK-funded Nutrition Training Grant (T32 DK0
