Anna M. Jones, Ph. A secondary focus of her research is the development of valid and reliable survey tools, particularly those that measure nutrition knowledge. Mary E.
Kable, Ph. Kable is interested in the mechanisms governing how diet impacts the bacterial composition of the human gut and how these diet-bacterial interactions can influence human health. Nancy L. Keim, Ph. Keim's research program involves evaluation of the effects of diet patterns and physical activity on energy balance and metabolic flexibility in adults at risk for chronic disease.
Recent work includes the development and application of novel tools to assess satiety in response to specific foods or meal challenges. Sridevi Krishnan, Ph.
Krishnan's studies energy and macronutrient metabolism and its disruption leading to chronic cardiometabolic diseases in women, using clinical diet or exercise intervention studies, with the help of indirect calorimetry whole room calorimeter , -omic metabolomic, lipidomic, glycoproteomic , behavioral food intake regulation and mathematical modeling clinical, multivariate biostatistics and machine learning tools.

Kevin D. Laugero, Ph. Laugero's lab studies stress and nutrition interrelationships. Research is being conducted to understand physiological and metabolic underpinnings of inter-individual variability in stress responsiveness, and how this can be used to explain vulnerability or resilience to the negative mental and physical effects of chronic stress.
A systems approach is applied to examine the interrelationships between stress, diet, and physical activity in animal models, humans, and the community to identify mechanisms and factors that explain differential regulation of the stress response. Danielle G. Lemay, Ph. Lemay's lab studies how dietary components, especially fermentable carbohydrates, affect host response and whether that response is modulated by the functional capabilities of resident microbiota.
John W. Newman, Ph. Newman's research group is developing and applying targeted and untargeted metabolomics tools to investigate metabolic responses to diet and their implications in the context of obesity and its associated co-morbidities.
Rachel E. Scherr, Ph. Research efforts include the implementation of a multi-component, school-based intervention entitled the Shaping Healthy Choices Program. Additionally, Dr. Scherr is focused on the usage of sub-clinical and novel biomarkers in nutrition education to assess the effectiveness of these multi-component interventions. Charles B. Stephensen, Ph. The effect of diet on the gut microbiome as a mediator of the impact of diet on immunity is also a current focus. Carrie Waterman, Ph. Assistant Researcher, Department of Nutrition Dr. Waterman's research focuses on natural products and nutraceuticals for improved nutrition, health, and income generation in developing countries.
She works with bioactive isothiocyanates and polyphenols from Moringa oleifera for treating chronic inflammation and factors of metabolic syndrome. Bruce A.
Watkins, Ph. Watkins's research is focused on energy balance, obesity, and endocannabinoid signaling. The research aim is to understand the role of endocannabinoid EC signaling in systemic energy metabolism, and on glucose use and insulin sensitivity in muscle. Ryan Wessells, Ph. She is also interested in the dietary and biochemical assessment of nutritional status, and relationships between nutritional status, intestinal mucosal function and infection.
Britt M. Burton-Freeman, Ph. Research Associate, Department of Nutrition Dr. Burton-Freeman's research follows two main themes: 1 Appetite and obesity management and, 2 Vascular disease.
Research emphasizes the effects of bioactive food components on mechanistic and behavioral processes of food intake and body weight regulation. Alan Crozier, Ph. Crozier's research investigates the absorption, disposition, metabolism and excretion of dietary flavonoids and phenolic compounds and their potential to protect against non-communicable diseases. D'Ann Finley, Ph.
Genomics and Proteomics Core Facility at the Deutsches Krebsforschungszentrum
Her research interests include the study of factors affecting breast milk composition. Cesar G. Fraga, Ph. Hajime Fujii, Ph. His current work includes research on a mushroom mycelia extract, a lychee fruit extract, and an enzyme-treated asparagus extract. Kosuna is an internationally-recognized business leader and innovator in the area of botanical extracts for human health. His current research interests focus on regulatory aspects of nutritional products in Asia and the United States, and the development of safe and effective natural products for use in food, beverage and dietary supplement industries.
Caroline Kurtz, Ph. Javier Ottaviani, Ph. Ottaviani studies the putative beneficial effects of plant-derived polyphenolic compounds against degenerative disorders, with an emphasis on vascular disease. Hagen Schroeter, Ph. Liz Applegate, Ph. Applegate developed and taught Nutrition 10 at UC Davis for 33 years teaching over 66, students more than any other UC davis instructor She created a fully online version of this popular course for use by all UC campuses.
She established a variety of internships focusing on sports nutrition and nutrition education for undergraduate nutrition students. She has served as the Director of Sports Nutrition for Intercollegiate Athletics providing nutrition education for 20 sports teams. Her research interests include the effect of natural food products on exercise performance, nutrition label literacy among adults, and nutrition education through gardening in developmentally disabled adults.

Brown, M. Brown conducts research on the epidemiology, treatment, and prevention of childhood malnutrition in lower-income countries, including evaluation of large-scale intervention programs. Research themes include infant and young child feeding breast feeding and complementary feeding , relationships between infection and nutrition, and control of specific micronutrient deficiencies, with particular focus on vitamin A, zinc, and iron. Andrew J. Clifford, Ph. Clifford's research concerns the dynamic and kinetic behavior of nutrient metabolism as it occurs in vivo in humans.
Foods rich in the above components protect against and hold promise for improved management of developmental, chronic, and degenerative diseases. Paul A. Davis, Ph. Kathryn Dewey, Ph. Dewey's research area is community and international nutrition, with an emphasis on maternal and child nutrition.
Greenwood, Ph. Greenwood's research interests are in national science policy, obesity, diabetes, and women's health.
