New additions to centre.

A COMPANY specialising in nutritionally balanced products for the elderly is the latest business to set up at Newcastle's Centre for Life.

Applied Nutritional Research (ANR) was set up this month by Newcastle based Mathew Richardson, who has developed products for use in sports nutrition; treatment of obesity; weight control and nutrition for the elderly.

"Certain people find it difficult to maintain a healthy, balanced diet for a variety of reasons. Elderly people may not have the inclination to choose a healthy snack; sports people may need a quick fix."

ANR is one of a growing number of companies who have chosen to be based at Life's science village.

Another recent addition is a new NHS initiative for the region, Northumberland, Tyne and Wear Comprehensive Local Research Network (NTW CLRN).

The Department of Health has set up a UK clinical research network to support clinical trials and research. Within this scheme there are research networks that focus on specific topics or diseases.

The Comprehensive Local Research Networks will support the work of all of the topic-specific groups in a given local area.

The NTW CLRN is the region's new Local Research Network for patient-centred research, which is based within the Centre for Life camp us.

Both organisations will be based in Life's Incubator Suites, which house state-of-the-art offices and laboratories.
