RESEARCH OBJECTIVES
The Research Group for Sports Nutrition and Physical Activity is a dynamic multi-disciplinary team of researchers devoted to learning, understanding, developing, and advancing in the areas of physical activity, sports nutrition and health sciences. Consistently high standards of research output have won it a strong international reputation. Over the past number of years, our group has been successful in attracting significant funding from the Research Grants Council and other organizations in Hong Kong. The research group is playing a leading role in organizing the 2018 International Society of Behavioral Nutrition and Physical Activity (ISBNPA) Annual Meeting in Hong Kong.
