About the Linus Pauling Institute
The Linus Pauling Institute's mission is to promote optimal health through cutting-edge nutrition research and trusted public outreach. Dr. Linus Carl Pauling concluded that vitamins and other essential micronutrients play a significant role in enhancing health. Nearly 50 years ago, Dr. Pauling co-founded the Institute to carry out research in this field that he believed would be of enormous importance to public health. After Pauling's death, the Linus Pauling Institute was re-established on the campus of Oregon State University in Corvallis, Oregon. For the past 25 years, the Institute has thrived as one of the University’s Research Centers and Institutes. Supported by gifts from individuals, private corporations, and foundations, it also has support from research grants (from private and federal agencies such as the National Institutes of Health) and continuing support from OSU.
