National Institute of Nutrition

National Institute of Nutrition (NIN) was founded by Sir Robert McCarrison in the year 1918 as ‘Beri-Beri’ Enquiry Unit in a single room laboratory at the Pasteur Institute, Coonoor, Tamil Nadu. Within a short span of seven years, this unit blossomed into a "Deficiency Disease Enquiry" and later in 1928, emerged as full-fledged "Nutrition Research Laboratories" (NRL) with Dr. McCarrison as its first Director. It was shifted to Hyderabad in 1958. 1. To identify various dietary and nutrition problems prevalent among different segments of the population in the country. 2. To continuously monitor diet and nutrition situation of the country. 3. To evolve effective methods of management and prevention of nutritional problems. 4. To conduct operational research connected with planning and implementation of national nutrition programmes. 5. To dovetail nutrition research with other health programmes of the government. 6. Human resource development in the field of nutrition. 7. To disseminate nutrition information. 8. To advise governments and other organisations on issues relating to nutrition NIN has attained global recognition for its pioneering studies on various aspects of nutrition research, with special reference to protein energy malnutrition (PEM). Institute’s activities are broad-based, encompassing the whole area of food and nutrition. The Institute has achieved close integration in its research activities between the laboratory, the clinic and the community. The emphasis shifted to problem-oriented research, with a view to discovering practical solutions to nutrition problems that can be applied within the existing socio-economic framework. National Institute of Nutrition, over the eighty years of glorious service to the nation, has to its credit an impressive record of achievements in the amelioration of several nutritional disorders of our people.
