The Center for Nutrition Research conducts pre-clinical trials that involve screening, discovering, and determining / confirming mechanisms of actions of potential compounds that could have implications in reducing or aid in the management of obesity, diabetes, hypertension and appetite. These pre-clinical trials provide affordable assessments of food constituents enabled by in vitro and in vivo animal models that are used for setting direction for clinical trials.
