The prospect of research in Department of Nutrition & Dietetics accelerates the nation’s growth. The Department of Nutrition & Dietetics, JSSAHER has cohort of researchers with extensive overseas research experience. Our research activities center around understanding biomolecules of life, biochemical and regulating process, nature of diseases, analyze complex biological systems and decipher the intricate network in pathological & neurological conditions using system biology approaches.

With wide array of disciplines at post graduation level, the research ensures a multidisciplinary mode. The research is also multidisciplinary with inputs from medical, dental, pharmacy chipping towards more robust form of approach.

The research, though in its initial stages has gained grants from various research funding agencies like DST, DBT, and ICMR. The department has also had collaboration with Philips.

The young researchers are provided with a seed grant by the Academy to facilitate the generation of substantial data for higher grants.

This interdisciplinary research provides a unique environment for integrative research and approaches to real world problems. This has been possible by working together with medical, dental and pharmacy schools and our other sister institutions. A memorandum of understanding (MoU) is in place with various international research partners to encourage interdisciplinary collaborative research.

Faculty members at Department of Nutrition & Dietetics, forefront in research, work hard to foster an inclusive environment defined by flexibility, care and aim to support our students to allow them to achieve their full potential in their area of research. We encourage collaboration between faculty members at Department of Nutrition & Dietetics and local partner institutions, thereby providing platforms for our students to communicate innovative and cutting edge research. These collaborative events help to establish a network of contacts with fellow students and senior researchers that become the basis for scientific interaction and that often happily lead to our students forming long lasting friendships.
