Our research into metabolism aims to generate understanding of how foods impact molecular and physiological mechanisms in health and disease. There is a growing demand for this knowledge as modern nutrition-related diseases and conditions are highly complex. The knowledge generated from our research is translated into innovative and timely solutions to inform clinical interventions, health policy, and the food industry.
Our Researcher’s expertise together with Monash’s infrastructure, including the BASE facility, Food Innovation Centre and technology and research platforms means we’re equipped to discover and lead advances in nutrition science.
All our researcher’s are central to the teaching teams in the Department of Nutrition, Dietetics and Food. All our courses teach key research skills across the curriculum. Our research findings are also communicated rapidly to our students.
