Anniversary Symposium 2014

In 2014 we celebrated 20 years of the Human Nutrition Research Centre at Newcastle University.

An anniversary symposium was held on Wednesday 15 October 2014 in the Lindisfarne Room on Newcastle University's main campus.

The symposium included reflections from the early days of the HNRC and showcased the research we are doing to tackle major public health challenges. The scientific programme was followed by a reception and buffet supper.
