Evidence-based Nutrition Research

in London

Our dietitians are actively involved in clinical research: They are not just working according to nutritional guidelines- they are helping develop them.

Our research focuses on a number of areas, including:

  • Paediatric nutrition (eating disorders, allergies, fussy eating, faltering growth, weight management)

  • Digestive issues (IBS, diverticular disease, colorectal problems, food aversions)

  • Diabetes, cholesterol and heart health

  • Women's health and fertility (PCOS)

  • Weight management and obesity

  • Workplace nutrition/shift-work/chrononutrition
