The Rowett Institute of Nutrition and Health

As part of the School of Medicine, Medical Sciences and Nutrition the Institute has strengthened its ability to thrive as a global leader in nutrition research.  Nothing demonstrates this more clearly than our new, state-of-the art building, which is situated on the University’s main Health Campus at Foresterhill.  The 10,000m2 building includes a clinical investigation unit, a metabolic research facility and a body composition suite, alongside extensive state-of-the-art laboratories.

A key aspect of the facility is the specialist Human Nutrition Unit, where volunteers are able to take part in dietary trials and studies in modern and comfortable surroundings, while at the same time providing the facilities we need to undertake scientifically rigorous studies.
