About the Centre

The Centre of Research Excellence (CRE) in Translating Nutritional Science to Good Health was established in 2012.

Initially funded by the National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC), the CRE seeks to encourage and promote clinical research in the area of nutritional physiology.

The Centre aims to formalise existing collaborations and facilitate the development of others, which span the spectrum from basic science, through human physiology and clinical medicine, to population health.

Our investigators, with backgrounds in endocrinology, gastroenterology, nutritional science, nuclear medicine, physiology, epidemiology and nursing, bring unique technical skills, unparalleled in this country, and a sustained record of productivity in clinical nutritional research, attested to by a high international profile, substantial impact on clinical practice, and the capacity to communicate a healthy nutrition philosophy to the public.
