SERVING THE COMMUNITY

Pennington Biomedical shares discoveries with the public and scientists worldwide through a variety of venues including outstanding educational programs, fellowship training and scientific symposia. Our location in Baton Rouge allows Pennington Biomedical to study and serve its own community and region where the rates of obesity, diabetes, dementia and cardiovascular disease are higher than anywhere else in the country and life expectancy is shorter than most other places in the United States.

SERVING THE COMMUNITY

Pennington Biomedical is proud to be a campus of the Louisiana State University System, long recognized as a leading land grant research institution.
