The University of Aberdeen’s Rowett Institute of Nutrition and Health is one of 15 partners conducting research for the European Commission funded Full4Health project. This is a project with the aim of:

“Understanding food-gut-brain mechanisms across the lifespan in the regulation of hunger and satiety for health”

Have a look here for more information.

The Rowett is currently looking for volunteers to participate in the project, so if you are interested, aged between 65 and 75 and have a BMI of 25 or less, then do get in touch with the study team.

Results and progress updates for all European Commission funded research projects are made available through CORDIS (Community Research and Development Information Service). The latest periodic report summary for the project is here. CORDIS produce the research*eu focus and results magazines which are available on paper in the EDC or online.

Researchers from Full4Health appeared on a BBC Horizon Special entitled ‘What’s the Right Diet for You?’ Unfortunately it’s no longer available on the iPlayer, however if you are a University of Aberdeen student or staff member, you can watch all three parts via the ‘Box of Broadcasts‘ service (just search for the full title once you’re logged in).
