Facility: Centre for Nutrition and Bone Health

Description

The overall aim of the Centre for Nutrition and Bone Health is to develop a new expert research capability focused on nutrition and bone health, particularly targeted at identifying strategies to prevent osteoporosis, a crippling bone disease that strikes people as they grow older and a serious public health issue with major health, economic and social consequences.

There will also be a focus on knowledge transfer both to the health service and to the local food industry as well as on promoting innovation and creativity with respect to novel functional foods targeted at people with specific genotypes who are at risk of impaired bone health.
