The aim of the Vitamin D Research Centre at Massey University is to provide an umbrella for the diverse range of vitamin D research interests of the scientists within the Institute of Food, Nutrition and Human Health at both Albany and Manawatu Campuses.
Because vitamin D deficiency is becoming implicated in such a wide range of disease conditions, the scope for vitamin D research is broad.
Researchers at Massey have expertise in a number of physiological conditions and lifecycle stages where vitamin D deficiency is potentially damaging to health in both the short and long term. These include bone health, metabolic syndrome, type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease, obesity and muscle strength, and during pregnancy, infancy and childhood, as well as older age.
