Nutritional Science

Nutritional science is a field that deals with human health and well-being, as well as the influencing factors and resulting relations. Accordingly, this makes nutritional science an interdisciplinary subject with a broad range of issues not only in science, but also in everyday life.

Our research includes the collection, evaluation and assessment of nutrition data in the context of representative surveys in epidemiology. This data is used to analyze current issues in nutritional science such as the intake of calories and nutrients or additives in different age groups. This allows for population-based dietary recommendations and preventive concepts to be developed. At present, the focus is on the health and nutrition of children, adolescents, seniors and athletes. Another area of research and development deals with the contents, relevance, and organization of nutrition knowledge for different target groups and is based on an intensive interdisciplinary discourse.

Our projects are carried out in cooperation with various partners. At the University of Paderborn, we work closely within the Department of Sports and Health. Our non-university partners include the “Deutsche Gesellschaft für Ernährung e.V.” (DGE), the Max Rubner-Institut (MRI), the “Bundesinstitut für Risikobewertung” (BfR) and the “Robert Koch-Institut (RKI).

In the field of education, different types of courses are offered for various degree programs. These courses include not only scientific aspects, but also everyday life issues. The teaching staff receives support from scientific assistants and student workers.
