The Center for Research in Obesity and Nutrition is committed to developing the next generation of scientists to meet the increasing need for biomedical science and translational medicine into metabolic syndromes and nutrition-related diseases. The goal of our Enrichment Core is to provide the leadership, tools, and resources in support of training diverse, highly skilled clinical and basic scientists. In collaboration with the Baylor Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences, the School of Medicine, and the Postdoctoral Association, the Enrichment Core will develop and coordinate educational resources and activities to ensure optimal integration of nutrition-related education at all trainee levels. We will also support trainee efforts to obtain training grants. The following educational opportunities are available:
