The Nutrition Discovery (ND) Labs at Ryerson University is an experimental nutrition, exercise physiology, and biomarker analysis research facility located in the Centre for Urban Innovation. ND Labs is dedicated to advancing our understanding of human ingestive behaviour, with a particular emphasis on elucidating the determinants of food intake control across the lifespan. Through our interdisciplinary research program, we are also examining the associations among macronutrient composition, exercise, cognition, hormonal and environmental factors with the goal of informing the development of evidence-based guidelines for promoting healthier body weights. We have significant leadership in the design of experimental trials related to diet and exercise, and in the design and testing of novel food ingredients, food formulations on satiety and cognition, and on biomarkers related to health and disease.
