University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill-Nutrition Research Institute

The UNC Nutrition Research Institute (NRI) is leading the development of individualized nutrition. Part of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, the NRI is located in Kannapolis, NC. Scientists at the NRI seek to discover why people differ in their metabolism and nutritional requirements and to use this understanding to ensure optimal health through individualized nutrition (precision nutrition). Just as precision medicine is the next frontier in medical treatment, precision nutrition holds great potential to enhance our ability to prevent, delay the onset, or mitigate the progression of disease and to improve health outcomes.

Journal of Lipid Research


The Journal of Lipid Research (JLR) publishes original articles and reviews in the broadly defined area of biological lipids. We encourage the submission of manuscripts relating to lipids, including those addressing problems in biochemistry, molecular biology, structural biology, cell biology, genetics, molecular medicine, clinical medicine and metabolism. Major criteria for acceptance of articles are new insights into mechanisms of lipid function and metabolism and/or genes regulating lipid metabolism along with sound primary experimental data. Interpretation of the data is the authors’ responsibility, and speculation should be labeled as such. Manuscripts that provide new ways of purifying, identifying and quantifying lipids are invited for the Methods section of the Journal. JLR encourages contributions from investigators in all countries, but articles must be submitted in clear and concise English.
