Nutrition and Health

Our mission is to understand how better and more sustainable nutrition can optimize human health and prevent disease.

Research Groups

The section conducts high-quality research on the effects of nutrients, foods and diets in humans in different lifestages and metabolic conditions.

The aim is to improve public health and wellbeing, prevent disease and advance our understanding of nutritional issues and underlying mechanisms.
