Masters programme in Molecular Nutrition at the Rowett Institute
The Rowett Institute offers a Masters programme in Molecular Nutrition.
Molecular Nutrition focuses on how the basic metabolites produced from nutrients and other food components influence physiological and health status by understanding the effects of these compounds at the molecular and cellular level. This new research orientated MSc, run within the Rowett Institute of Nutrition and Health and the School of Medicine and Dentistry, aims to provide training in Molecular Nutrition for graduates in biological sciences which will help them for future careers in nutrition in private and academic institutions, hospitals, industry or national and international agencies.
The main focus of the programme is on the relationship between diet, health and disease at the molecular and cellular level. Particular emphasis is placed on practical exercises designed to give students first-hand expertise of, and insight into, research methods relevant to Molecular Nutrition.
