About Program

About The ProgramEmory's Program in Nutrition and Health Sciences [NHS] offers a Ph.D. degree within the Laney Graduate School.

Starting in Fall 2015, the program will be an independent program in the Laney Graduate School and no longer affiliated with the Graduate Division of Biological and Biomedical Sciences. Program administration will be aligned with the Rollins School of Public Health and more information will appear as changes are implemented.

Our students obtain the skills necessary to investigate relationships between human nutrition and health and contribute to improving nutrition worldwide. The NHS faculty were recently ranked 4th in the US in terms of research productivity. Core strengths in metabolomics and predictive medicine, clinical nutrition, population-based intervention trials and epidemiology, and public nutrition programs ensure a quality training, whatever aspect of human nutrition inspires you.
