pidemic rise in obesity and obesity-related disorders such as heart disease, diabetes, and cancer.” As its first strategic initiative, the Institute is focusing on childhood obesity.

Once complete, the approximately 80,000 square feet IFNH building will stand three-stories high and will include modular open-space research laboratories supported by clinical research facilities, a human performance center, a preschool education learning center, a conference center, and a healthy eating courtyard. More information about the Institute and the architecture can be found on the IFNH website.

At the ground breaking, Dwayne Proctor, Ph.D., Senior Program Officer and Team Director for Obesity at RWJF joined Rutgers President Robert L. Barchi, M.D., Ph.D., Robert M. Goodman, Ph.D., Executive Dean of Agriculture and Natural Resources, and other university leaders in marking the ceremonial beginning of the project, due to be completed by summer 2015. It is anticipated that the construction of this facility will also significantly increase student enrollment in the aforementioned programs.

In addition to providing capital for this project, RWJF recently contributed $12.5 million to support the merger of Rutgers University and the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey (UMDNJ). The Foundation also provides funding for a range of Rutgers programs including the Center for State Health Policy (part of the Institute for Health, Health Care Policy and Aging Research), and at UMDNJ the Child Health Institute, the Cardiovascular Institute, and the Cancer Institute of NJ.
