Welcome to the Department of Nutritional Sciences

The Department of Nutritional Sciences is one of the few departments of nutrition in North America to be located within a Faculty of Medicine. This, together with its close linkages with University of Toronto’s Dalla Lana School of Public Health, allows the department to fully explore the relationships between nutrition and human health and disease, and to influence clinical practice and public health programs. It also creates unique opportunities for collaboration with the highest concentration of university-affiliated hospitals, clinicians, and health researchers in North America.
