MRC Elsie Widdowson Laboratory

In 2016, following restructuring and refocussing of its research interests MRC Human Nutrition Research was renamed the MRC Elsie Widdowson Laboratory (MRC EWL). This took effect from 01 September 2016.

MRC EWL’s remit remains to conduct nutrition research and surveillance to improve the health of the population and to inform policy and practice. The previous MRC Human Nutrition Research website has been captured and can be found here.
