NRI nutrition research starts in the laboratory then, sometimes, moves into clinical trials. These studies rely on people who volunteer to be a part of scientific discovery to find new ways to detect, treat or even prevent disease. At the NRI, research focuses on the intersection of nutrition and genetics and, therefore, each clinical study has different requirements. So check the opportunities below to see if you are eligible. When you participate in a clinical trial you provide opportunity to researchers and hope to so many people worldwide. Participants typically receive a monetary reward for completing a research study.
