Our researchers have expertise in a broad range of areas related to food and nutrition across the lifespan, from the impact of maternal and infant nutrition on development to how diet influences the development of chronic diseases later in life. Work carried out by our researchers also follows the continuum of food and nutrition, from food composition and the effect of food processing on nutrients through digestion, fermentation by gut microbiota, absorption and metabolism of nutrients. Research areas of concentration include nutrient bioavailability and bioactivity, nutrigenomics, prebiotics and probiotics as well as the role of diet during the early stage of development and in the onset of cardiovascular disease, inflammatory bowel disease, kidney disease, diabetes and cancer.
