Welcome to the Human Nutrition Unit (HNU) based at The Rowett Institute, 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. Find out what it’s like to be a volunteer watch our videos below.
If you're interested in volunteering for our nutrition studies, a list of our current studies is found here.
To reduce the risk of infection in the department; please inform your study contact if you have any known COVID-19 symptoms and do not attend your scheduled appointment until your symptoms have resolved.
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.
