Dr. J Bernadette Moore is currently Associate Professor of Obesity, and the Research Group Leader for Nutrition and Public Health, in the School of Food Science and Nutrition. Research in Dr. Moore’s group is largely focused on the role of hepatic nutrient metabolism in healthy ageing, obesity and non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD). To date, she has raised over 1.7 million pounds in research funding and been supported by the: BBSRC, EPSRC, Children’s Liver Disease Foundation, and the Universities of Surrey and Leeds. Her research employs a variety of genomic, proteomic, and systems biology tools alongside nutritional intervention studies. Current active strands include: (i) utilizing quantitative proteomics to dissect the molecular aetiology and pathogenesis of NAFLD; (ii) developing multi-scale mathematical models capable of predicting hepatic nutrient metabolism in silico; and (iii) clinical and public health nutrition aspects related to dietary assessment and the prevention and management of NAFLD and obesity in children and adults. She is the recipient of the 2018 Nutrition Society Silver Medal Award.
