Applied Research

We are gaining significant recognition as an applied nutrition research centre.

Research impact

Our centre includes academics with a range of research interests and expertise, and this diversity allows for a multi-disciplinary research approach with significant clinical and public health impact. The role of nutrition in maintaining health and quality of life is of increasing public health importance and our research actively engages in the most current and world leading research and a policy in nutrition science.

New collaborations with both international and UK stakeholders will contribute significantly to the applied research activities, helping to develop its global reputation as a nutrition research institute. Together with our numerous esteem indicators, our grant funding success, high quality publication and dissemination outputs, and research experience and integrity, will contribute to the increasing impact and sustainability of our research.
