Professor Lisa Wood is a Registered Nutritionist and Nutritional Biochemist, whose research focuses on investigating nutritional approaches to managing respiratory disease, with a particular interest in asthma.
There is a strong community interest in dietary approaches to managing asthma. However, due to a lack of good quality scientific data, specific dietary advice has not been available. Prof Wood’s research addresses this need, and her research has focused on how antioxidants, fatty acids, fibre and obesity, modify inflammation in the airways.
In We Breathe What We Eat, Prof Wood will discuss these findings and the implications of her research for people with lung disease.
