The Food and Health Lab at Montana State University explores linkages among food environments,
nutrition, and health. We conduct basic and applied research addressing society’s most pressing issues of feeding communities with nutritious
foods while maintaining the health of our environment. In particular, we work with
diverse communities to address food system challenges. We offer collaborative space,
research facilities, and critical training for an interdisciplinary group of faculty, staff, and students
to study food systems. Our ultimate translational goal is to develop strategies to
foster biodiversity, food security, and high dietary quality to improve both human
and environmental health outcomes.
The Food and Health Lab at Montana State University is a research facility of the
Montana IDeA Network of Biomedical Research Excellence.
