  • The Sackler Institute for Nutrition Science Research Fund at the New York Academy of Sciences

  • With support from The Mortimer D. Sackler Foundation, the Sackler Institute for Nutrition Science provides direct funding to stimulate research in important gap areas, through grants and an annual competitive award.

  • Our Research Projects in 2015–2016 focus on empowering the research community in nutrition science while addressing key knowledge issues.

    • The adolescent nutrition research projects will help understand the current status of this relatively poorly understood population sub-group in order to prioritize at both at the New York City and global level (see press release).
    • The Annual Award focuses for the first time on Early Career Investigators (scientists who completed their PhD within the last five years) to help new talent emerge while encouraging academic excellence and nutrition research that has a strong application from a public health standpoint.
