The core group of MAMA Lab researchers reside within the Department of Applied Human Nutrition at Mount Saint Vincent University, but we have collaborators across Atlantic Canada and around the globe. Major research partners include researchers from Helen Keller International (Cambodia), Dalhousie University, the University of Prince Edward Island, the South Australian Health and Medical Research Institute, to name just a few.


The MAMA Lab now has a BodPod!

For research purposes only at the moment, but we will soon offer body composition analysis to the public!
Check back for updates!
