In addition we are delighted to have our local, invited speaker for the evening: Dr Jennifer Ahn-Jarvis, Research Scientist, Quadram Institute who will present on ‘Food design in clinical trials: the impact of food formulation on absorption and metabolism of bioactive compounds’.

Jennifer’s training as a registered nurse and food scientist has provided a broad background and a unique expertise in conducting dietary intervention trials from a perspective of a clinician and scientist. Her research is focused on optimizing food design to create food structures which enhance exposure of food bioactive components to localized and systemic targets. Moreover, she utilises various food processing strategies to improve the bioavailability of dietary food components.
