About our research

Work within the Nutrition and Growth theme is largely undertaken by researchers at the Children's Nutrition Research Centre (CNRC). The CNRC is one of Australia's leading paediatric nutrition research centres with a global reputation for research achievement. This reputation is the culmination of a quarter century of dedication and focus by its researchers, staff and students, whose combined efforts keep the Centre at the forefront of research to improve the nutritional health of infants, children and adolescents. Renowned for its studies in growth and development, body composition and energy metabolism, the CNRC has particular expertise in basic science, clinical nutrition research and public health nutrition.
