Nutrition represents the provision of necessary material to the cells and organisms in order to survive. Nutrition of the human beings is constituted by the food and drinks we ingest.
The field of nutrition and dietetics specializes in understanding the effects of alimentation on the human body. Food is necessary for us to survive, but since food is also a human pleasure, an art and an industry, food can also harm us. By regulating our food ingestion we can prevent certain unhealthy developments of the body, or we can remedy them if they happened already. Nutritionists can advise a person on what and how to eat and drink to become or maintain healthy. This area is much more complex than it first seems since, the diet one should adopt is not standard, but has to be customized for each person according to his/her state of health, previous or existing conditions, necessities or requirements.
Nutrition and dietetics is the science that helps us when we want to lose weight, improve our athletic capabilities, go through physical transformation or undergo surgical procedures. This discipline is closely related to medicine, physiology and chemistry.
We offer a very comprehensive, interdisciplianry and fast track preparation for performing a PhD project at the Graduate School of Life Sciences (GSLS), University of Würzburg. Research topics for the Master program as well as for the subsequent PhD are clustered in the sections of Biomedicine, Integrative Biology, Infection and Immunity, and Neuroscience,
Research in food processing is carried out in partnership with key companies such as Nestlé, Unilever and Cadbury, and through visiting professorships. Joint research takes place with food science departments at Nottingham, Leeds and Reading Universities.
The programme attempts to promote the creation of a learning excellence network in our country in the knowledge field of nutrition and paediatrics.
Nutrition and healthy eating are of increasing importance in the twenty-first century. Research is proving that, beyond doubt, nutrition is of fundamental importance to health. This is echoed in the political health agenda in hospitals and schools and within the wider community. Prevention of ill-health by sound nutrition and other lifestyle changes is seen as the way forward to decreasing many degenerative diseases such as heart disease and cancer. Nutritional therapy, which is a branch of complementary medicine, is contributing to health improvement, not only as a preventative strategy, but also as a treatment therapy in its own right.
The programme covers the essential elements of food science at Masters Level. The focus is to orientate students towards how the food industry works and the requisite theoretical and practical skills to allow the student to gain employment opportunities in these businesses.
This programme provides future nutritionists with specialist knowledge and training in nutrition science, plus the skills necessary for research. The programme attracts a mixture of students from the UK and overseas and has an excellent record for subsequent employment, with the majority of graduates entering further research.
