The following information applies to the CLOSER resource: ‘A guide to the dietary data in eight CLOSER studies’.


We would like to thank the study teams for their support and the study participants for their key contributions to this work.

The creation of the online, interactive version of this guide was led by Dara O’Neill and Catherine Zang from CLOSER.

CLOSER was funded by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) and the Medical Research Council (MRC) between 2012 and 2017. Its initial five year grant has since been extended to March 2022 by the ESRC (grant reference: ES/K000357/1). The ESRC took no role in the design, execution, interpretation or the writing up of the findings in this guide.
