CIHRʼs Institute of Nutrition, Metabolism and Diabetes
CIHR-INMD supports research to enhance health in relation to diet, digestion, excretion, and metabolism; and to address causes, prevention, screening, diagnosis, treatment, support systems, and palliation for a wide range of conditions and problems associated with hormone, digestive system, kidney, and liver function.
Questions surrounding nutrition, metabolism and diabetes transcend all borders. This is reflected in the broad variety of workshops and symposia hosted by INMD that bring together the wide variety of partners, stakeholders and organizations that make up the INMD community.
