The dedication of the nearly 80,000-square-foot New Jersey Institute for Food, Nutrition, and Health facility on the George H. Cook campus took place on October 27. The facility offers nearly 40,000 square feet of research space and approximately 30,000 square feet of community space to facilitate communication and cooperation among scholars who pursue interdisciplinary research; policymakers who apply research to real-world problems associated with food and health; and parents, their children and students whose lives can benefit from wellness programs and health and education activities. The institute will serve as a university-wide hub for interdisciplinary research whose mission is to make New Jersey the “Healthy State” and a model for the nation. Read more at Rutgers Today.
