Staff and Students

The Mary Emily Clinical Nutrition Research Unit for human feeding studies is set up at 7 Maple Street on the Macdonald Campus. This facility allows the collection of in-depth mechanistic information regarding the flux and metabolism of nutrients to be obtained non-invasively in humans.

Most of the faculty, staff and students working at the Mary Emily are members of the School of Human Nutrition (formerly the School of Dietetics and Human Nutrition); however the facility is also used by others who have research laboratories in teaching hospitals and other departments of McGill University. They work in diverse areas of research, from basic to clinical, involving vitamins, amino acid and protein metabolism, lipid metabolism and disorders, neurochemical effects of nutrients, oncology, and others.
