The history of the Nutrition & Health programme at Wageningen University goes back over 40 years; it is considered to be one of the best and most innovative programmes in its field in Europe. Research in Nutrition and Health in Wageningen covers all areas within the field. From advanced Nutrigenomics research (member of EU-network of excellence), to sociological considerations of Nutrition behaviour, Wageningen studies Nutrition & Health at the (sub)cellular, individual and population level. Moreover, close co-operation with other MSc-programmes in Wageningen, allow students to operate on the interface of Nutrition with other disciplines. Examples can be found in Master-theses supervised in colaboration between the divisions of Human Nutrition and Communication Sciences. Cooperation between the Laboratory of biochemistry and the molecular nutrition group is another example.
