Lifestyle for health and well-being
The aim is to improve human health and well-being throughout the lifespan by considering the social, behavioural and biological determinants and consequences of human lifestyles with specific emphases on physical activity, nutrition and chronic disease.
In the context of preventing and managing chronic disease and facilitating health promotion, members of the theme conduct world class research into the life-course determinants and consequences of physical activity, sedentary behaviour and nutrition.
We cover a wide range of expertise including psychology, epidemiology, physiology, nutrition, sport science, human biology, and social sciences.
