The Nutrition Innovation Centre for Food and Health (NICHE) at Ulster University are officially opening the new state-of-art Nutrition and Vascular Studies Unit.
This new facility was previously based within the Medical Research Council’s Elsie Widdowson Nutrition Laboratory in Cambridge in partnership with the NNEdPro Global Centre for Nutrition and Health and has now been transferred to Ulster.
The new facility will greatly enhance our ability to conduct cutting-edge nutrition and cardiovascular research, a priority area within NICHE and a global health issue of particular concern for people in Northern Ireland.
