Course content

Our PhD/MPhil Nutrition programme enables you to undertake a research project that will improve understanding of Nutrition.

Nutrition is defined as the intake of food, considered in relation to the body's dietary needs.

It has major implications for health and function, and in the genesis or prevention of many diseases occurring across the life course.

We recognise this as a cross-cutting domain, with relevant research activities taking place in many of our specialist research divisions.

These projects range from basic bioscience and mechanistic research through to many aspects of diet and health, including obesity.

There are also particular opportunities in clinical nutrition and nutritional support, including intestinal failure.
