The Medical Research Council and National Institute for Health Research have set up a consortium of funders to support academia and industry research in nutrition.

The move, announced on 20 July, follows a report published on the same day, Review of Nutrition and Human Health Research. The report was commissioned by the Office of Strategic Coordination for Health Research.

In a news release, the MRC said it is launching funding opportunities, via the Global Challenges Research Fund, in partnership with the research councils, the Department for International Development and the Department of Health.
