Nutrition researchers aim to make science more accessible to young minds and the public

Piglet and Baby milk bottle cheers

  • After publishing several scientific papers on nutrition’s role in infant brain development, researchers in the Piglet Nutrition & Cognition Laboratory are working on ways to bring the science of what they study out of the lab and into the hands—and minds—of kids.
  • Frontiers for Young Minds is a scientific journal for kids, in which articles are written by distinguished scientists, and then edited and reviewed by kids. Researchers in Ryan Dilger’s laboratory recently published an article that distilled their previously-published research for kids to understand.
  • The ultimate goal of this publication is to inspire the next generation of scientists, to get them excited about research, and to encourage them to think critically about the world around them.
