Andy is a member of the Future Food leadership team. Andy has worked extensively on the molecular mechanisms whereby diet impacts upon lipid metabolism and metabolic disease, particularly cardiovascular disease. In parallel, he has developed a research portfolio looking at the sustainable production of healthy foods to meet the demands of the expanding and ageing global population.
He currently leads the Future Protein Platform, a £1 million investment from the Future Food Beacon. The aim of this project is to evaluate novel systems for production of plant and non-plant protein sources, to assess their nutritional value and to develop their use as human foods and animal feeds.
