Welcome to the new website for the HRB Centre for Health and Diet Research

The HRB Centre for Health and Diet Research is a leading research hub in Public Health Nutrition focused on promoting the health and wellbeing of the Irish population.  The purpose of the Centre is to inform public policy, health promotion, clinical practice and the citizen. 

Following the completion of a very successful Phase One work programme, the Centre is now beginning Phase Two and is pleased to launch our updated project website to coincide with this exciting time. 

Knowledge transfer and dissemination will form an integral aspect of the Phase Two work programme for the Centre.  The new website will be central to this by providing an effective platform to disseminate and create greater awareness of the Centre’s research outputs.

We hope you find the website useful. Please contact us if you have any queries you wish to discuss. 

Best wishes,

Professor Ivan Perry, Principal Investigator of the HRB Centre for Health and Diet Research.
