The N4H Research Group

The N4H Research Group is a collective of scientists who were originally selected to conduct a science due diligence project for nucleotide research funded by the North West Development Agency. Part of the remit for this project was that the published research and information would eventually be posted on the web, to be available for all.

Although the science due diligence project is now complete we remain excited by the great potential of nucleotides. In the course of our work we have met with many of the research scientists currently working in the field of nucleotides and health and we feel we have their support in continuing to add to the knowledge base, which we hope to do well into the future!
