Stream 5 - Obesity, Metabolism and Nutrition

Obesity, Metabolism and Nutrition

The Obesity, Metabolism and Nutrition stream aims to prevent and treat complications resulting from disorders of the metabolism, such as diabetes, osteoporosis and obesity.

It incorporates one of the world's leading clinical paediatric endocrinology research centres, as well as an Obesity Research Group which focuses on the burgeoning problem of child and adolescent obesity.

Other work looks at the efficacy of exercise in improving metabolism, muscle and bone strength in children with a range of chronic conditions.
