HRB Centre for Health and Diet Research
The HRB Centre for Health and Diet Research is a leading research hub in public health nutrition that focuses on promoting the health and wellbeing of the Irish population. Its purpose is to inform public policy, health promotion, clinical practice and citizens on the prevention and management of obesity, diabetes and related metabolic disorders.
The Centre is coordinated by Professor Ivan Perry, Department of Epidemiology and Public Health, University College Cork (UCC) in partnership with University College Dublin (UCD) and the Institute of Public Health in Ireland (IPH).
Knowledge transfer is an integral part of its work and the Centre is committed to promoting free, unrestricted, timely online access to its publications and other information for the benefit of public health.
What is Open Access?
Technological advances in internet publishing provide many opportunities to bring information to wider audiences who can apply it in new and innovative ways.
