The Friedman School pursues cutting-edge research and education from cell to society, including in molecular nutrition, human metabolism, population studies, clinical trials, nutrition interventions and behavior change, communication, food systems and sustainability, global food insecurity, humanitarian crises, and food economics and policy.
The winners of the 2018 Food and Nutrition Entrepreneurship Competition give an update on their progress since last April.
The Friedman School's strategic plan identified entrepreneurship for a healthier, sustainable, equitable food supply as a major priority. We are gathering successful entrepreneurs to serve on our new advisory council, highlighting current activities, and developing new programs that foster entrepreneurship and create a climate of innovation and discovery. Our new Program in Nutrition Entrepreneurship creates an ecosystem around food innovation where students, scientists, companies small and large, advisors, and funders can come together to create new solutions for a healthier, sustainable, more equitable food supply.
