Nutrition and Dietetics are very pleased with the recent announcement that 90% of Flinders University research has been ranked at or above world standard in the latest Excellence in Research Australia (ERA) assessment. Even more exciting is that the field of Nutrition and Dietetics achieved significant improvement from 2012 when it was ranked as 3, to achieving a rank of 5, the highest possible ranking in 2015.
We are amongst some very reputable Flinders company including nanotechnology, cardiovascular medicine and haematology, ophthalmology and optometry and human movement and sports science. We are thankful to our collaborators in the profession who continue to support or partner in our research endeavours and look forward to continuing to add to the body of evidence that supports our nutrition and dietetic practice.
