School of Nutrition and Translational Research in Metabolism
NUTRIM School of Nutrition and Translational Research in Metabolism aims to contribute to excellence in health maintenance and personalized medicine by unraveling lifestyle and disease induced derangements in metabolism and by developing targeted nutritional, exercise and drug interventions. This is facilitated by a state of the art research infrastructure and close interaction between scientists, clinicians, master and PhD students.
NUTRIM research focuses on chronic diseases, including diabetes, COPD, inflammatory bowel disease, liver disease and renal disease, and contributes to improving cancer care. Biomedical research is directly linked to clinical trials and research focusing on behavioural interventions and health promotion. A primary goal is to accelerate the translation of science to patient and population. This distinct profile has placed NUTRIM at the cutting-edge of various related domains. NUTRIM's research lines are:
- Metabolic Syndrome
- Gut-Liver Homeostasis
- Chronic Inflammatory Disease & Wasting
- Gene-Environment Interactions
NUTRIM offers a PhD training programme for students who aspire a broad understanding of human nutrition, metabolism and toxicology, next to outstanding research capabilities. NUTRIM researchers also teach in several master’s programmes, such as ‘Biomedical Sciences’, ‘Physician Clinical Scientist’ and ‘Health Food Innovation Management’.
