About the NORC: Leadership

Built upon the leadership and member base of the Michigan Metabolomics and Obesity Center, the UM NORC is comprised not only of scientists whose research focuses on nutrition and obesity, but also investigators who have skills in complementary areas. This adds new perspectives and considerable talents to the study of nutrition and obesity. The breadth of scientists involved in the UM NORC have catalyzed new thinking in metabolomics, microfluidics, imaging, cognitive sciences, and informatics that have enriched seminars, symposia, retreats and, most importantly, research programs. The UM NORC leadership is committed to an inclusive policy to expand the thinking of investigators and to further scientific team building.
