The NYONRC, the oldest NIH obesity research center, operates in support of $65M per year of peer-reviewed obesity-related research. Through closely integrated, outstanding core facilities, pilot projects, enrichment and clinical activities, the center has made major contributions to basic understanding and applied approaches to the problem of obesity. Our goal remains to expand the knowledge base relating to the causes, complications and treatment of obesity.
