Nutrigenomics and Systems Nutrition Group



The Nutrigenomics and Systems Nutrition Group (headed by Prof. Michael Müller) is currently establishing its research at the Norwich Medical School of the University of East Anglia and the Institute for Food Research at the Norwich Research Park. We mainly focus on characterising specific molecular mechanisms underlying the dietary and physiological regulation of the gut-liver axis. We investigate certain signalling pathways that control the proper communication between the different elements of this axis during homeostasis and metabolic challenges (e.g. feeding-fasting, high-fat diets, caloric restriction).
