Our research has shown the importance of children having a healthy start to life. Our four key research themes explore the influence of the early life environment on the long-term health of this and future generations.
Healthy mothers, healthy babies
A mother’s environment, diet and lifestyle during pregnancy and even before conception can influence the outcome of her pregnancy and her child’s life-long health.
Nutrition for life-long health
Good nutrition is important at every stage of life: from the health of parents at conception, to the impact of diet on muscle health in adulthood.
Determinants of a healthy life
This ground-breaking area of science is a key research theme at Liggins because of its potential to understand why and how non-communicable diseases develop.
Research to Reality
Research to Reality is all about finding the best ways to translate our research findings into changes in clinical practice.
