Message from the Project Director
Ruth Pfau College of Nutrition Sciences

VALUED STUDENTS, a heartfelt welcome at Ruth Pfau College of Nutrition Sciences (RCNS), where learning, is the way of life.

 I am of the complete insight that at the beginning of your academic career, with a sanguine attitude, each one of you has joined this great institute with millions of dreams in the twinkling eyes. My role as Project Director is to motivate every one of you on the path of your dreams where you can uptrend your caliber, competence and of course professional skills with our absolute support. Our interdisciplinary program is an interactive community of faculty and students with interests in diverse areas of nutrition. The designed curriculum considers the needs of a diverse set of students, a strong foundation in basic nutritional principles, with modular courses taught each year addressing specific areas of basic, applied and clinical nutrition.

Opportunities for professional development and ethics training are also essential part of the curriculum. The value added, seminar series would allow students to explore the interdisciplinary-transdisciplinary nature of nutrition research by inviting external speakers. The scope of nutrition research plays a vital role and is vast as it continues to grow, but is currently divided into six themes including Biochemical and Molecular Nutrition, Dietary Bioactive Components, Human and Clinical Nutrition, Food Safety and Toxicology, Animal Nutrition, Community Nutrition, Nutrition Education and Consumer Acceptance. Our research would be focused to addresses significant issues of today such as food insecurity, nutrition education and health promotion, dietary patterns and disease prevention, bioactive food components and reproductive nutrition.

I am immensely happy to be associated with this institution and wish that students may kindle their potential, knowledge, skills, for the best utilization in their future career. Rest assured, you will not be alone but consistently guided throughout your four years at RCNS in my capacity of student advisor and project director of the institute.
