Preventive and Clinical Nutrition

The Section for Preventive and Clinical Nutrition possesses specialist expertise within the documentation of the health effects of food, clinical nutrition and the use and development of biomarkers.

The section carries out meal studies and long-term dietary intervention studies focusing on single foods or food components and involving voluntary adult trial subjects to investigate whether it is possible to document particular health effects, and working also with patients to find the best diets as part of their treatment. 

The section develops new methods for measuring food consumption, nutrition and health effects using metabolomics.
