OverviewResearch Activities

The Nutrition Innovation Lab team has been newly awarded the opportunity to work in Egypt beginning in 2015.  The team is examining both obesity and stunting in Egypt, as both are common and increasing in prevalence.  Unlike many countries, obesity and stunting cut across socioeconomic groups and affect individuals regardless of wealth and education.

The Nutrition Innovation Lab planned to conduct 3 major activities for this study:

  • Literature review
  • Secondary data analysis
  • Primary data collection for mycotoxin exposure and environmental enteropathy
