In the Professorship on Clinical Malnutrition and Healthy Ageing we aim to bridge gaps in knowledge and clinical practice regarding malnutrition, to increase the number of healthy life years in older persons. Therefore, the interdisciplinary research in the Professorship on Clinical Malnutrition and Healthy Ageing focuses on three pillars: 1) the role of physical activity in the nutritional status of patients with chronic diseases and older persons; 2) the relationship between malnutrition and frailty; and 3) nutritional assessment.

Research output and products resulting from research of the Professorship on Clinical Malnutrition and Healthy Ageing will be implemented and disseminated both nationally and internationally, for example in the European Innovation Partnership on Active and Healty Ageing.
