Cardiovascular Disease

The Center for Nutrition Research conducts human nutrition and clinical research on cardiovascular disease and metabolic health that involves blood pressure control, lipid management, and glucose homeostasis. This in turn determines the right bioactives and in the right amounts for best results. Research in the efficacy dynamics in parallel with characterizing absorption, metabolism, and excretion kinetics of various bioactives and their metabolites is the foundation of this research.
