SYSDIET, Systems biology in controlled dietary interventions and cohort studies, is one of the three projects in the Nordic Centre of Excellence (NCoE) Programme on Food, Nutrition and Health,  launched by  NordForsk  in 2007. SYSDIET gathers 12 research groups from Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden in a coordinated effort to exploiting nutritional systems biology tools
in human dietary interventions, animal and cell culture studies. 

SYSDIET aims to find out novel mechanisms by which Nordic foods and diets could be modified to promote health and prevent metabolic syndrome and related diseases.

SYSDIET is organised in four working groups. In addition to the joint research program SYSDIET offers training courses and scientific workshops to enhance the use of systems biology tools in food and nutritional research. A core joint research activity is a multicentre intervention investigating the effects of ahealthy Nordic diet in subjects with features of metabolic syndrome, using modern systems biology tools to identify diet-induced changes in physiology.
