One of the greatest challenges we have as researchers of chronic disease is to understand why the drugs that make us better, also make us sick.

Since earning his PhD in nutritional sciences, Bart C. De Jonghe has focused his work on addressing debilitating side effects such as nausea, loss of appetite, and vomiting associated with disease and disease treatment.

“Advances in neuroscience offer powerful research opportunities to improve health by relieving severe drug side effects which accompany common treatments.”
