The German Institute of Human Nutrition Potsdam-Rehbruecke (DIfE) conducts basic research in the field of nutrition and health. The overall aim is to develop new strategies for the prevention and therapy of nutrition-related diseases and to create a scientifically sound basis for dietary recommendations. Thereby three socially particularly relevant areas are in focus: the influence of diet on the development of obesity and its complications, especially type 2 diabetes; the role of nutrition in healthy aging; the biological basis of food choices and dietary behavior.
