Molecular and Applied Nutrition Training Program (MANTP)
This NIH Nutrition Training Program, established at the University of Wisconsin in Madison in 1993, is built upon a tradition of outstanding nutrition research and disciplinary breadth that provides a unique educational opportunity for trainees. The MANTP has enhanced the training of predoctoral and postdoctoral researchers who intend to become leaders in nutrition-related biomedical research. Former trainees are professors at leading universities and senior researchers at major companies. Current trainees are carrying out diverse research projects ranging from genetic studies in model organisms aimed at understanding nutrient function, metabolism and regulation to nutritional studies in humans aimed at elucidating how and in animal models of human disease.
