Sarah Berry is a Reader in Nutritional Sciences at King’s College London. Her research interests relate to the influence of dietary components on cardiometabolic disease risk, with particular focus on; personalised nutrition, postprandial lipid metabolism and food and fat structure. Since commencing her research career at King’s, she has been the academic leader for more than 30 human nutrition studies in cardio-metabolic health.
Sarah is also the lead nutritional scientist on the ZOE PREDICT programme of research, assessing the genetic, metabolic, metagenomic, and meal-dependent effects on metabolic responses to food in >10,000 individuals in the UK and US. This research is at the forefront of developments in personalised nutrition and is forging a new way forward in the design and implementation of large-scale remote nutrition research studies integrating novel technologies, citizen science and AI.
Sarah’s talk will focus on the rapidly evolving area of personalised nutrition and the PREDICT programme with emphasis on the importance of not just ‘what’ we eat, but ‘who’ we are and ‘how’ we eat in determining the health effects of food.
