Jean Mayer USDA Human Nutrition Research Center on Aging
Scientists at the HNRCA examine how nutrition impacts healthy aging and the role nutrition plays in preventing diseases of the aging. The HNRCA, which is an independent research facility located two blocks away from the Friedman School on the Tufts Boston campus, was established in 1977 as a unique partnership between the USDA and the University. Many of the scientists at the HNRCA’s 20 research labs are also Friedman School faculty. Friedman students have unique opportunities to conduct research under the supervision of HNRCA scientists who have international stature in their respective areas of research expertise.
