Use-inspired research: UC Davis drives nutrition innovation with consumers in mind

The Innovation Institute for Food and Health (IIFH) at the University of California (UC), Davis, US, aims to foster innovation in nutrition by bringing research and commercialization together. The Institute aspires to create “happier, healthier lives for everyone” through market discovery, talent development, and research.

Nutrition Insight takes a deep dive into the concept of use-inspired research at IIFH, which the institute defines as “expanding the frontiers of knowledge with the needs of the end user in mind.”
