INFINITE (Investigating Nutraceuticals and Functional Integrative Nutrition to Invigorate, Transform and Empower) looks to explore the impact nutrition, supplements and herbal medicine as components of disease treatment, as well as maintaining health.


STABLE (Studying Traditions of Acupuncture, Bodywork and Life-force Energy) research seeks to develop evidence for practices like acupuncture, massage, Tai Chi and Qi-Gong in maintaining health, as well as in integrative treatments for chronic conditions.
