Robert Murray, M.D.
College of Education and Human Ecology
I spent much of my career as a professor in the Department of Pediatrics of the Ohio State University College of Medicine, located at Nationwide Children's Hospital. In 2006, I became the Director of the Center for Healthy Weight and Nutrition. Previously, I spent 20 years in the field of pediatric gastroenterology and nutrition, and was Director of the Borden Center for Nutrition and Wellness. I then served for three years as the Pediatric Medical Director for Ross Labs, a division of Abbott Labs before returning to Children's to create the weight management program. Currently, I serve as a consultant on projects involving pediatric nutrition and childhood obesity and am a Professor in the Department of Human Nutrition at Ohio State University. I also provide leadership for FIC's obesity efforts. FIC is needed to generate novel approaches toward food development to overcome specific barriers associated with overweight and undernourished children--whether access to quality, functional foods or the problems of cost, taste and safety.
