Feeding microbes to protect the brain: does the gut microbiota mediate the risk-reducing effects of a healthy diet on Alzheimer’s disease?

Background. Ways of reducing the risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease (AD) and other dementias are critically needed, given the almost total lack of truly effective therapeutic options, even despite newer anti-amyloid drugs1. Read more

Minimising pathogen colonisation of the gut using diet and specific gut bacteria

Applications are invited for this self-funded 36 Month project within the Rowett Institute at the University of Aberdeen. The human gut contains trillions of microbes, known as the gut microbiota, that are beneficial for our health and provide a barrier to prevent infections by pathogenic bacteria. Read more

The effect of low protein diet on the development of the neuromuscular system

Age-related sarcopenia is characterised by reduction in the number of myofibres and motor neurons and an additional weakening of the remaining fibres, causing reduction in muscle mass and function. Read more

AI-enabled Dietary Diary for better health

These projects are open to students worldwide, but have no funding attached. Therefore, the successful applicant will be expected to fund tuition fees at the relevant level (home or international) and any applicable additional research costs. Read more

Designing Technology for Personalised Nutrition

This PhD investigates the design of technology to provide personalised nutrition advice. Non-communicable diseases such as diabetes and cardiovascular disease are major challenges globally, and can be addressed, in part, by eating a healthier diet. Read more

The human microbiome: Interactions with diet, health, and performance

  Research Group: Institute of Life and Earth Sciences
We have previously shown that ingestion of green leafy and root vegetables such as beetroot can improve markers of cardiovascular health [1,2] and exercise performance [3,4]. Read more

Causal risk factors and biological mechanisms for colorectal cancer risk

Rationale. Diet and lifestyle are likely to play an important role in colorectal cancer risk; obesity, low levels of physical activity, red and process meat consumption and low intake of dietary fibre have all been shown to predict colorectal cancer risk. Read more

The INDICO-II Study – Effects of Body Composition and Dietary Improvement on Cell Membrane Dynamics and their Relationship with the Aetiology of Type II Diabetes

The InDiCo Study (Inflammation, Diets, body Composition) is a pre-clinical study conducted at the University of Worcester. The InDiCo Study is currently unravelling links between diets that favour a pro-inflammatory environment with biomarkers of cell function and body composition. Read more

Identifying cognitive and biochemical changes underlying lifestyle risk factors for dementia

  Research Group: Pharmacology and Experimental Therapeutics
Dementia describes a group of age-associated conditions of which cognitive decline is a major feature. Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is the most common cause of dementia and is characterised by the onset of a gradual cognitive decline. Read more

Ethnic-specific markers and mediators of metabolism and disease risk

Globally, cancer, diabetes, and cardiovascular are the leading cause of death. These diseases are linked to a person's age, ethnicity, culture, genetics, and lifestyle habits, such as diet and exercise. . Read more

Using nutrigenetic, nutrigenomic and machine learning approaches to investigate the risk of cardiometabolic disease-related traits in ethnically diverse populations.

This PhD project represents an exciting opportunity to develop and conduct research at the forefront of nutritional and genetic epidemiology, contributing to the prediction, prevention, and better understanding of the development of non-communicable diseases such as obesity and diabetes, using datasets from multiple ethnic groups.

Cardiovascular and Neuromuscular Functions around the Clock: Harnessing Protective Endogenous Mechanisms towards Smarter Design of Novel Therapies and Interventions

Optimal tissue and organ is essential for long-term health and quality of life. One such important regulator within the body is related to circadian rhythms, which control ~24h cycles in many physiological processes such as sleep/wake cycles, physical activity/rest cycles, drug metabolism and hormones.
