The World Health Organization (WHO) has named Cornell’s Division of Nutritional Sciences a collaborating center, establishing the division as a research and training partner in WHO’s public health and nutrition policies.
Patrick Stover, the division’s director and professor of nutritional sciences said “This allows us to better advance Cornell science for the public good on a global scale.”
Cornell will train experts, including master’s degree students, allowing faculty and graduate students to engage more rapidly in the process of translating new scientific knowledge into nutrition policy and programs to improve the health of all populations. This in turn enhances the impact of their research.
David Pellitier will lead the area of implementation science; that is, converting nutrition knowledge to effective polices and programs at the national and global level. “They will be actively engaged in developing a global database, hosted at WHO, to support best practices in implementation of nutrition programs,” Stover said.
