CRNH

CENTRE DE RECHERCHE EN NUTRITION HUMAINE

 

CRNH – Rhône-Alpes gathers researchers working either in clinical teams or in research laboratories and has an in-patient unit for healthy volunteers and patients and a mass spectrometry laboratory. The main research axes are prevention and treatment of mal nutrition (over and under nutrition) and functional properties of food (carbohydrate and lipids). CRNH-RA is well recognized at the international level for its research works on the physiological and molecular basis of obesity and diabetes (mechanism of insulin resistance and adaptation to nutritional changes at physiological and molecular level), of lipid metabolism and vascular risks with experimental approaches focusing on fatty acids of nutritional value, especially omega-3 ones, and on Cancer and Nutrition through the link with the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC, WHO-UNU organization),. It also has an important role in developing and disseminating new strategies in the prevention and the treatment of these diseases.
