The Centre of Excellence for Nutrition’s (CEN) focus is determined by the prevailing nutritional problems in South Africa, the rest of Africa and also globally.
The group’s vision is to be the leaders in developing scholars in Nutrition in Africa. Our research approach “from molecules to society” enables us to contribute on all levels of nutrition-related health outcomes.
The overall research theme at CEN is Nutrition for Health and Development. Nutrition can be seen as the foundation for health and development. Better nutrition leads to a stronger immune system, fewer illnesses and better health. Finally, the Centre of Excellence for Nutrition is a young and vibrant research entity with highly committed team members. We have a clear strategy that will lead and keep us on the road to excellence.
