Nutrition

Nutrition

The nutrition group includes nutritionists, biochemists, physiologists, epidemiologist, chemists and molecular biologists. Their mission is to explore the relationship between nutrition and health. They aim to test dietary and behavioral interventions, to prevent obesity and its associated disorders, to characterize biological systems that regulate dietary behaviors, metabolism and energy balance, to understand why there are individual differences in metabolism and nutrient requirements (nutrigenomics and metabolomics) and to determine how whole foods and specific nutrients impact health and promote well-being.
