People in the Cardiometabolic Nutrition Research Lab

The Cardiometabolic Nutrition Research Lab, under the director of Dr. Penny Kris-Etherton, studies the role of foods, nutrients, bioactives, and dietary patterns in the prevention of cardiovascular disease and type 2 diabetes. We conduct a range of controlled clinical trials to investigate the effect of diet on a number of emerging and established risk factors for cardiovascular disease and type 2 diabetes.
