Organizer

Innovation Institute for Food & Health

The UC Davis Innovation Institute for Food and Health (IIFH) makes uncommon connections between sectors and disciplines to catalyze innovation across foodagriculture and health.

Our mission is to catalyze and support uncommon collaborations that will accelerate innovations which address global nutritional challenges, with the vision to accelerate deployment of products and processes that enable safe, sustainable, and secure nutrition for all.

We work with partners to identify systemic issues as the basis for collaborative programs. The IIFH strategically coordinates both top-down (partner driven) and bottom-up (investigator initiated) approaches to formulate systemic solutions. This reduces the time from conception to application for transformative impact.
