About the Centre for Metabolic Health Research

The Centre for Metabolic Health Research is a new research centre founded in 2014 in the College of Health at Massey University.

Metabolic diseases such as obesity, diabetes and cardiovascular diseases afflict a large proportion of the New Zealand population, and are placing an increasing burden on public health systems.

Our mission
