Pilot and Feasibility Program

The mission of the NIDDK-funded Boston Nutrition Obesity Research Center (BNORC) has been to facilitate and support the conduct of cutting edge basic and translational research in the fields of nutrition and obesity science in Boston and the New England area. BNORC’s Pilot and Feasibility Program has successfully provided funding on a competitive basis for new investigators who are transitioning to an independent line of research or established investigators with novel ideas in the area of nutrition and obesity research.  The Center will not fund any new projects as of June 2022.
