NIH establishes two new centers for supplement research

With nearly $15 million in funding from the National Institutes of Health over the next five years, Purdue University in Indiana and the University of Arizona in Tucson will establish Centers for Dietary Supplement Research. Purdue researchers will collaborate with colleagues from the University of Alabama, Birmingham to study polyphenols in green tea, soy, grapes, red clover, and kudzu. Ayurvedic medicine will be the focus at the University of Arizona's center, where the active constituents and pharmacological activity of boswellia, turmeric, and ginger will be studied. NIH established its first two supplement research centers last year, at UCLA and the University of Illinois, Chicago. The Tan Sheet, Sept. 25, 2000; The Indianapolis Star, Sept. 21, 2000.
