Public health nutritionists integrate a sound understanding of the science of nutrition with expertise in consumer behavioural science, public health policy, effective health promotion strategies, risk assessment, population demographics and economics, regulation of food standards and food product development. Determining how our diet affects disease risk is important for improving public health and is the basis for sound health promotion policy.
Human nutrition researchers within the Human Nutrition and Dietetics division carry out a range of public health studies and are active in the fields of nutrigenetics and nutrigenomics, which investigate the relationship between our genes and our nutritional environment.
