Structure-function relationships governing polyphenol bioactivity with respect to plasma membranes

This project aims to investigate polyphenol binding to lipid membrane surfaces with a view to understanding how polyphenol structure and aggregation within the gastrointestinal tract (GIT) affects the bioavailability of these nutraceuticals. Read more

Modelling metabolism in the human gut to understand inter-tissue metabolism during ageing

What we eat as humans as well as how food is physically and biologically processed in our stomach as well as our small and large intestines has an enormous impact on how we develop as infants, how we age and whether ageing is healthy or is impacted by disease. Read more

(BBSRC DTP) Understanding the contribution of dietary extracellular vesicles to healthy human development

The ability to adapt behaviour in response to nutrient availability is important for all cells but particularly so for trophoblasts, as these cells form the placenta - the interface between mother and fetus - and act as fetal sentinels of the maternal environment. Read more

Insects as a dietary protein source in nutrition and health: Feasibility of a sustainable alternative to animal-based protein sources

Insects have been used as a source of dietary protein for many years in East-Asian and African populations and more recently the interest in this potential protein source has been growing in Western countries due to the issues outlined above and increased awareness of animal welfare issues in the food chain.

Investigating the role of bioactive lipids in skin health

Human skin depends on systemic provision of fatty acids that are important to maintain the integrity of the epidermal barrier as well as to support the associated immune and inflammatory reactions. Read more
