About Us

The mission of the NRCI is to support multi-disciplinary research and provide a suitable platform for scientists (for example, medical, biological, nutritional and social) to exchange knowledge and gain further understanding into the study of human well-being.

This centre was established by researchers within the School of Health Science at the Waterford Institute of Technology, and provides a unique space for scientists to conduct research across a diverse range of human health related disciplines.

The main research areas active within the centre are:

  • Biotechnology
