In the Nutrition Research in Medicine program, we create a close network of nutrition scientists within the UMCG. We are working from 'bed to bench and beyond', in observational cohort research, patient-related research, and fundamental research. As lifestyle is a multi-organ target, diet has great potential to impact the onset, treatment, remission and comorbidities in chronic diseases.

We reach our goals by:

  • strengthening each other with methodological innovations in nutritional science
  • facilitate academic, paramedical and clinical talent in healthcare-related nutritional science
  • collecting (hospital based) nutritional data that can be used for research
  • being a point of contact for external partners
