The Program in International Nutrition (PIN) at Cornell University focuses on research, policy and action to improve nutrition and health in low and middle-income countries. The PIN network of research faculty and staff, graduate students, and alumni is connected by engagement in efforts to discover, implement, and evaluate strategies to address immediate and underlying causes of poor nutrition.
PIN research and graduate study activities encompass multiple nutrition-relevant disciplines and range from the molecular to the population level. We collaborate with international agencies, governments, research and academic institutions, non-government organizations and donors around the world.
Graduate study in the Field of Nutrition at Cornell offers a concentration in international nutrition within the doctoral program in the Division of Nutritional Sciences (DNS).
DNS faculty identifying as working in international nutrition can be found here.

Many PIN activities are designed to support and connect nutrition graduate students with each other, and with faculty in nutrition and across campus. One example is NS6980, a weekly Seminar in International Nutrition on topics of interest to students and faculty in a range of disciplines related to nutrition and international development. Upcoming presentations are listed here.
Beyond Cornell, the PIN network includes over 150 alumni with graduate degrees focused on international nutrition research. Alumni of the program work all over the world with governments, international agencies, donors, non-governmental organizations, academic and research institutes to create and translate nutrition evidence into effective practice. PIN alumni activities and perspectives are highlighted here. If you are an alum, we’d love to hear from you!
