Centre for Nutrition and Food Sciences (CNAFS)
The Centre for Nutrition and Food Sciences (CNAFS) was established in 2003 at the University of Queensland in collaboration with the Queensland Government.
CNAFS supports the development of enhanced health outcomes and economic benefits for Queensland and Australia by carrying out relevant fundamental and applied research across the nutrition and food sciences to provide a sound basis for subsequent exploitation.
The science of food and nutrition involves the integration of approaches drawing from physical, chemical and biological disciplines.
CNAFS uses a range of cross-disciplinary approaches, modern analytical techniques and understanding developed through study of model systems, to identify the fundamental mechanisms responsible for important food and nutrition properties. This involves extensive collaboration with research groups within UQ and Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry (DAFF), and many other Australian and international partners.
