Biomedical Research Centre

 

The National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) Leicester – Loughborough Diet, Lifestyle and Physical Activity Biomedical Research Unit (BRU) first opened its doors for business in 2012 to look at how physical activity, diet and lifestyle can impact upon the prevention and treatment of chronic diseases.

State of the art exercise equipment has been installed at the LDC and new staff  have been appointed at both University Hospitals of Leicester NHS Trust (UHL) and Loughborough University’s School of Sport, Exercise and Health Sciences (SSEHS).

The NIHR Leicester – Loughborough Diet, Lifestyle and Physical Activity BRU was awarded £4.5 million NIHR funding over five years from April 2012 plus £1.38 million capital funding by the Department of Health. Read more in their portfolio.
