Dr Lisa Coneyworth graduated from Newcastle University in 2005 with a first class honours degree in Food and Human Nutrition. She studied for her PhD in the Institute of Cellular and Molecular Nutrition at Newcastle University, under the supervision of Professor Dianne Ford and Professor John Mathers. She graduated in 2009 and went on to complete a period of post doctoral work at Nottingham University in the Wolfson Centre for Stem Cells, Tissue Engineering and Modelling (STEM). Her research expertise lies in the area of epigenetics including the role of epigenetics in zinc regulated gene expression, genetic and non genetic influences during pregnancy on DNA methylation and the effect of specific nutrient exposure on epigenetic modifications in human embryonic stem cells.
Lisa is currently module convenor for the 1st year undergraduate module D21BN1 (Introduction to Nutrition), the 2nd year undergraduate module D224NP (Research in Nutrition and Biochemistry and the… read more
