Welcome to the Human Nutrition Unit (HNU) based at the Rowett Institute of Nutrition and Health, University of Aberdeen. Here, we run a variety of human nutrition studies for which volunteers are needed.
The HNU was established in 1986 to provide a metabolic research facility to study the relationship between diet and health in humans.
The facilities in the Unit enable both residential and out-patient studies to be conducted here. Find out more about the studies currently being conducted in the Unit and how to participate. To learn more about what happens here, watch our movie. You can also read our volunteers newsletter.

We run informal open evenings. If you would like to be notified of these, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
Please Note: Although we are a nutrition research unit we are unable to provide advice on diet to individuals not currently participating in any of the studies. If you are concerned about your diet, please consult your GP.
