Brief description Over 20% of Australian adults either have diabetes, or are at imminent risk, while 60% are overweight or obese. Conversely, some 40% of the elderly receiving domiciliary support are at risk of malnutrition. Poor nutrition underpins numerous chronic diseases. We seek to capitalise on the expertise and multidisciplinary collaborations of several groups, all leaders in their fields, and whose collective track record in clinical nutrition research cannot be matched in Australia, to form a Centre of Excellence that encompasses the physiology of nutrition, dietary intervention strategies, and evaluation of outcomes, in diabetic, overweight, elderly, and critically unwell populations.
