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

Bringing up baby: in search of novel biomarkers for obesity risk using stable isotope ratios in incremental tissues in mother/infant pairs

  Research Group: Archaeological and Forensic Sciences
