“The Rowett is at the forefront of health and nutrition research and so this is a fantastic opportunity to come along and find out a bit more about what our scientists are currently working on.

“For anyone that hasn’t visited the building already they will get to see around the facility and also visit the Human Nutrition Unit, which is where anyone who volunteers for any of our studies will attend.”
