Centre for Nutrition


The Centre for Nutrition is established at the Faculty of Medicine, the University of Bergen, and is organized under the Department of Clinical Medicine. Nutrition is an important field in clinical medicine, both in research, education and clinical practice. Research will be the main focus. Education is already taken care of through the program committees, but the centre will also support education and communication. The centre is connected to a network of research groups and researchers with relevant activities in Western Norway, both in and outside of UiB.
