Department of Sport, Health Sciences and Social Work


  • We are a thriving group of research active staff and research students. Research within the nutrition group focuses on nutrition in health and disease, in particular facilitating healthy lifestyles, preventing poor metabolic health and managing metabolic conditions, all through nutrition and physical activity.

    We have recently changed our name from the Functional Food Centre to the Oxford Brookes Centre for Nutrition and Health (OxBCNH). This new name encapsulates the research and consultancy that we conduct within OxBCNH and future areas we wish to explore

    We offer a number of flexible part-time and full-time research degree opportunities including Masters by research, MPhil, PhD and PhD by published work. Research students are well supported through expert supervision, comprehensive skills training and many opportunities to interact with other researchers and students across a variety of disciplines and from different institutions.
