Future of Food and Nutrition Graduate Student Research Conference

Posted by Tufts University on December 08, 2014

We are pleased to announce the call for abstracts for the 9th annual “Future of Food and Nutrition” Graduate Student Research Conference on Saturday, April 11, 2015 at the Friedman School of Nutrition Science & Policy at Tufts University in Boston, MA.

You are receiving this email because of your connection with graduate students in the diverse fields of food and nutrition. We’d be deeply grateful if you could forward this information along to students or colleagues who may be interested in submitting an abstract or attending the conference. We look forward to hearing about all the innovative research being done by the future leaders of food and nutrition. Please see below for details.

The Conference provides a unique venue for graduate students to present original research related to food and nutrition. Historically, more than 200 attendees from over 30 different institutions have come together each year to hear students present research from fields as diverse as nutritional epidemiology and anthropology.

As a presenter or attendee, students gain valuable professional experience presenting and discussing novel, multidisciplinary research, and have the opportunity to network with fellow students and future colleagues. Relevant research includes projects conducted as part of course work, thesis work, internships, capstone papers, or directed studies.

Applicants can apply here to give either oral or poster presentations.


We look forward to seeing you in April!

The Student Research Conference Committee
