About the Clinical Nutrition Research Centre (CNRC)
Recognized as a global centre of excellence, the CNRC’s vision is to develop an integrated programme that understands how food may be used to minimize the development of chronic diseases and promote healthy ageing through evidence-based science. With an extensive expertise and world-class facilities for clinical nutrition research, including whole body calorimeters and state of the art analytical instrumentations, we conduct both short- and long-term studies in human nutrition. The unique feature of conducting research in Singapore is the presence of the three major Asian ethnic groups, and the opportunity to explore their unique phenotypes to provide new insights into how specific food and food components can influence the etiology and prevention of chronic metabolic diseases prevalent in Asia.
