Research areas and facilities
The PI’s, PhD students and supporting STAFF of our department of Nutrition and Movement Sciences are working in four interacting domains. By making the connections between the areas we create the full power of the healthy lifestyle model approach. The four domains are:
- Physiology of Human Nutrition
- Diabetes and Metabolism
- Thermophysiology and Metabolism
- Human Movement Sciences.
Experiments are conducted in our state-of- the art research infrastructure consisting of the metabolic research unit Maastricht (MRUM), the human performance laboratory (HPL) and our involvement in application and development of wearable technologies for life style monitoring.
