Optimum nutrition for health
Transcriptomics, proteomics and metabolomics.

The Rowett Institute of Nutrition and Health is part of the College of Life Sciences and Medicine, University of Aberdeen. It brings together extensive capabilities and expertise in nutritional research to pursue cutting edge science aimed at preventing disease and improving health through good nutrition and aims to provide robust nutritional evidence to guide food and health policies.
They undertake research to determine the optimum nutrition for health and the prevention of disease. They aim to provide evidence-based nutrition information to enable Government to formulate robust nutritional advice. In addition, our research enables agriculture and agri-food industries to improve food quality based on nutritional benefit as well as on the basis of taste.
Their research is focused on:

  • developing an understanding of the biological activity of specific nutrients at a cellular level
  • the identification and development of biomarkers to aid in the detection and prevention of diet-related diseases
  • understanding the basis of individual differences in responses to diet.

This work is underpinned by state of the art platform technologies such as transcriptomics, proteomics and metabolomics.
