The culmination of a two-year process to formulate a prioritized nutrition science research agenda that is easily accessible and can be translated into application and public policy changes to improve human nutrition worldwide.  The global initiative was led by The Sackler Institute for Nutrition Science, under the umbrella of The New York Academy of Sciences, and in collaboration with the World Health Organization (WHO).  This group identified three focus areas that represent the broad categories where further research is most needed: (1) Environmental and societal trends affecting food and nutrition among vulnerable populations (2) Unresolved issues of nutrition in the lifecycle, with particular focus on the mother and child, and (3) Delivery of interventions and operational gaps.
