Food-Based Biomarkers, Diet Quality, and Cardiometabolic Health


Project Description

Diet plays a major role in the prevention of heart disease, yet diet and heart health research can be limited by challenges in the assessment of food and dietary patterns. This project, which is part of a larger programme of work, will examine novel questionnaires measuring dietary quality, and measurement of food-related biomarkers, exploring whether use of these biomarkers when giving dietary advice, helps support dietary change and reduces heart disease risk. The student will develop dietary assessment, dietary pattern and diet quality assessment and dietary intervention skills, with the project being a combination of analysis of already collected data and new data collection, including the conduct of a dietary intervention study.
