More about this group

Research within this topic covers the aetiology and prevention of poor nutrition at a population level, including eating disorders, under and over nutrition and the consequences of poor nutrition - obesity and associated metabolic abnormalities (insulin resistance, type 2 diabetes, dysplipidaemia). It includes observational and genetic epidemiology and complex intervention studies in the community (including in pre-school, primary and secondary school settings), primary care and secondary care. Researchers in this topic are involved with setting public health policy through providing an evidence base, such as to the National Child Measurement Programme.
