PhD Studentship in Nutrition and Health: Association Between Dairy Products and Cardiometabolic Disease

University of Reading - Institute for Food, Nutrition and Health

Supervisors: Professors Ian Givens and Julie Lovegrove

Project Overview: Evidence from long-term prospective studies indicates that high consumption of some dairy products is associated with a reduced risk of stroke and type 2 diabetes.
