Welcome to the inauguration of the Centre for Nutrition!

The Centre for Nutrition is a new centre at the Department of Biosciences and Nutrition. It explores how diet composition, dietary regimes, and nutritional supplements can be used to improve human health and longevity. The aim is to establish a leading research centre of excellence in translational research in nutrition, metabolism and disease prevention.
