About the Moore Institute

The central commitment of the OHSU Bob and Charlee Moore Institute for Nutrition & Wellness is to reduce the prevalence of chronic diseases across the lifespan in current and future generations by promoting healthy, nutrient-rich diets based on whole-foods – before conception, during pregnancy and lactation, and in infancy and early childhood.

The scientific cornerstone of the Moore Institute for Nutrition & Wellness is a discipline in which OHSU is internationally recognized: the Developmental Origins of Health and Disease, or DOHaD, which illuminates the vital relationships between maternal prenatal diet, fetal health and adult onset disease.

Nutrition Oregon Campaign
The Moore Institute is working on a statewide initiative grounded in the science of DOHaD, with the bold vision of using the power of nutrition to end chronic disease in Oregon. Find out more.
