Connecting Science

The World Food Center is lifting UC Davis to the global stage as the top research university for food. By bridging agriculture, food science, nutrition, veterinary medicine, public health and policy in new and transformational ways, the Center is magnifying UC Davis science for a greater impact on society and the planet's food systems. 

Since 2013, the World Food Center has been:

  • Serving as a focal point for deepening and broadening the university's collaborations with partners.
  • Convening leaders to shape strategy and policy.
  • Connecting research to society and the marketplace.

UC Davis' unmatched portfolio gives it the ability - like no other institution - to serve as the hub for transformation, both locally and globally. UC Davis is one of the top-ranked universities in the world for agriculture and veterinary medicine, and one of the top 10 public universities in the nation.
