    Nutrigenomics Specialization will enable students to work in Nutrigenomic Research Institutes and Advanced Health & Wellness centers. As a Nutrigenomics Professional, it is critical to learn and understand the relationship between genes and nutrients as well as the genetic variants of patients. This will enable students to design effective, genetically-focused, customized nutritional programs. On successful completion of this Specialized Master's Program, students will be well-placed to comprehend the information included in genetic tests and will be able to translate it into nutritional recommendations for their patients.
