< Our Themes
All of our themse are underpinned by strong fundamental science programmes in the Faculties of Medical and Health Sciences (FMH), the Faculty of Science, the Quadram Institute of Bioscience (QIB) and the John Innes Centre (JIC) focussed on establishing the:
- Genetic, physiological and molecular basis of health maintenance and age-related chronic disease progression
- Impact of food and its components and other behaviours on biomarkers of health and disease using model systems and explanatory human studies
- Effect of genetic variability, sex and other variables on the response to behaviour change
The JIC has large research programmes focussed on optimised plant food production and composition.
