The Department of Nutrition, Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, Boston with Professor Walter C Willett as Director and his group, including Associate Professor Eric B Rimm, is one of the leading centres worldwide in development of nutritional epidemiological methods.
Walter C Willett and Eric B Rimm will provide competences in the design, analysis and interpretation of follow-up studies on diet and incidence of IHD.
Eric B Rimm recently served on the 13 Member Scientific Advisory Panel for the 2010 US Dietary Guidelines Committee and thus has recent experience in the translation of findings from observational studies and trials on nutrition to food-based dietary guidelines.
One postdoctoral fellow in this group will manage the American cohorts focusing on the substitutions of macronutrients.
