Dr Anthony Lynn


Summary

I am the course leader for MSc Nutrition with Public Health Management course. I have an undergraduate degree and PhD in nutrition. My PhD investigated the effect of raw and processed vegetables on DNA damage in colonocytes. I have previously worked as a nutritional scientist for the Scottish Foods Standard Agency and as a researcher in the Human Nutrition Unit at the University of Sheffield. My main area of interest is the effect of phytochemicals on health. My secondary interest is sports nutrition.
