Welcome to the Chair of Nutritional Biochemistry

The composition of our food and our dietary patterns such as omnivorous, vegetarian or vegan diets influence not only physical and cognitive performance and health status, but also individual behaviour and well-being. Furthermore, nutrition represents a central component in the regulation of intermediary and energy metabolism through its involvement in almost all metabolic processes. Obesity is a worldwide problem affecting approximately 40 % of the population. The main underlying reasons are high caloric diets and reduced physical exercise. The prevalence of obesity, insulin resistance and the consequent diseases such as type-2-diabetes and metabolic syndrome is increasing rapidly.

The primary research goal of the Chair of Nutritional Biochemistry is to develop mechanistic insights into the relationships between nutrition and health, thereby contributing to the elucidation of fundamental biochemical and physiological processes and their nutrition-dependent regulation.
