Opening of a new laboratory for nutritional research
MOHN Nutrition Research Lab opened June 11th 2018 as a collaboration between Bergen Research Foundation (BFS), University of Bergen (UiB) and Haukeland University Hospital (HUS).
“We will do research on both obesity and undernutrition and investigate how this can be treated in the best possible way”, says Professor Jutta Dierkes, Department of Clinical Medicine, who is the chairman of the new laboratory.
The chairman of BFS, Stener Kvinnsland, was present at the opening, and he pointed out the paradox of nutritional research as a neglected field in medical research, despite that nutrition affects everybody. The opening of the nutritional research lab underlines the positive trend in nutrition research that has occurred the last few years. “Nutritional research is extremely important”, he says.
