Date:6/18/2008

The UK's first Centre of Excellence for Public Health Research will be launched at Queen's University Belfast today, with a focus on nutrition and lifestyle.

With a research portfolio that spans molecules to populations, the 5m centre is part of a 20 million investment programme under the umbrella of the UK Clinical Research Collaboration (UKCRC).

Professor Frank Kee of Queen's, the Director of the Centre of Excellence for Public Health (NI), said a theme of partnership would underpin everything that the Centre would do.

"The Centre will help Queen's and our partners to make a tangible difference to the wellbeing of the community. This will be central to our mission.
