Human Nutrition Research Centre (HNRC)

Research center that undertakes research which will underpin healthier dietary choices

The Human Nutrition Research Centre (HNRC) was established in 1994 as a multi-disciplinary, cross-faculty research centre. The remit was to undertake research into the links between nutrition and health. In particular, we research interventions which could reduce the risk of common non-communicable diseases and improve public health.

This continues to be our aim. Over the past 15 years we have expanded our research approaches to take advantage of emerging technologies such as those in nutrigenomics. We have major interests in interactions between diet and the genome.

Innovative methodology is a major building block for all research. We have researched new tools for the measurement of dietary intake. These are appropriate for different population groups, from the youngest young to the oldest old.
