Food research is a very broad area and at the University of Manchester, we have expertise and excellence in this area across all faculties.

Current research and collaborations are showcased through our blogs, including a snapshot of research from all four faculties across at The University of Manchester available on our youtube channel.

Recent highlights include:

  • Food Insecurity, Nutritional Deficiency and Older People in the UK: A Scoping Study (Purdam, K., et al., Ongoing with Manchester Institute for Collaborative Research on Ageing (MICRA), Food@Manchester and Manchester City Council)

  • Emissions associated with meeting the future global wheat demand: A case study of UK production under climate change constraints. (Röder et al., Published in: Environmental Science & Policy.)

  • High arsenic in rice is associated with elevated genotoxic effects in humans (Banerjee et al., Published in: Nature Scientific Reports)
