We’re a multidisciplinary, international research network that improves the management of chronic disease for adults with lower literacy.
Our research aims to study:
Experiments on our nutrition usually involve varying a single dietary factor while keeping other factors constant. These experiments have suggested that a range of dietary factors may influence human health. However, our nutrient intake doesn’t occur in the simplified setting of a laboratory. It occurs within a complex environment where multiple variables interact to influence eating habits and health.
Our work draws on existing population-specific, national and global dietary surveys to examine the individual and interactive effects of various dietary factors.
Our cross-disciplinary team will analyse the contextual role of dietary factors in the biology of human health and disease.
