Organization profile

Profile Information

The BUND Research Group works towards research excellence in the field of nutrition and dietetics by creating opportunities and supporting the research activities of its members. Specifically, the BUND Research Group has focused nutrition and dietetic areas of excellence in: oncology, ageing, cardiovascular disease, chronic kidney disease, sports and professional practice issues. This is underpinned by themes of consumer engagement and innovation. Across all these areas, the BUND Research Group is future focussed, and aims to optimise translation of evidence into practice.

The group was established in 2014 by program lead Prof. Liz Isenring and BUND Research Chair A/Prof. Katrina Campbell, with membership including BUND academic staff and higher degree researchers. The group’s research meetings provide a platform for capacity building through peer review, collaboration, continuing professional development and strategic planning and coordination.

In addition to this, the BUND Research Group has set ambitious and strategic key performance indicators for research output and dissemination. These targets have been exceeded year on year, with almost double grant income and manuscripts accepted in 2016 from 2015.

In line with BUNDs strategic goals, the key performance indicators for 2017 have increased. The group’s ongoing success can be attributed to the exceptional leadership and mentoring provided by the BUND academic staff, as well as participation by the committed and inspiring higher degree research candidates and collaborators.
