Charlotte Martin

PhD Candidate, Human Molecular Nutrition Laboratory, University of Newcastle

I graduated with a degree in Food Science & Human Nutrition (Hons I) in 2010. Currently I am in my third year of my PhD in the area of Nutrigenomics. My research examines genotype-phenotype relationships relevant to the human lifecycle with reference to vitamins and nutrition, and particularly genes related to the folate metabolic pathway and vitamin D receptor. I also have an interest in evolutionary medicine and the associations between our genes, contemporary diets, lifestyle and disease.
