interdisciplinary doctoral study program

Research in the field of nutrition is gaining ever greater importance, since it provides the basis for the development of new products and planning the food chain from production to use. It provides the basis for planning policies in the field of agriculture, the food and pharmaceutical industries, health protection and preventive medicine. 

Nurtrition is an explicitly interdisciplinary science, and doctoral study in the field of nutrition is thus also planned in this way. Within the framework of basic subjects, students refresh and supplement knowledge of the bases of nutrition and nutritional biochemistry. In both basic subjects, lecturers from various fields present in entirety the biochemical basis, nutritional research and the foundations of clinical nutrition. With the aid of elective subjects, doctoral students obtain an in-depth basis in fields that are directly connected with the doctoral task. Within the framework of lectures, seminar and laboratory research work and consultations, students deepen knowledge in the field of topical research problems of human and animal nutrition. The main aim of doctoral work is mastering some modern research methods in nutrition, developing a critical approach and understanding processes in the development of nutrition sciences.
