Tour 4: What’s New in Dairy, Nutrition and Health

Visit the Northern Ireland Centre for Food and Health (NICHE), which is part of Ulster University’s Biomedical Research Institute at Coleraine. NICHE performs applied research to understand the links between diet and health, investigating the role of food and nutrition in maintaining health and in the progression of diseases such as obesity, cancer, heart disease, osteoporosis and cognitive decline. The visit will include a tour of the Human Intervention Studies Unit, with iterative stations and practical examples of how we use our state of the art equipment to assess health, as well as a brief overview of NICHE highlighting some of our current research of interest and relevance to the dairy sector.
