Staff Profile

Dr Anthony Watson

Teaching Fellow


My primary role is as a human nutrition teaching fellow in the school of biomedical sciences.

I am a also researcher with an interest in investigating the impact of nutritional interventions upon biological outcomes which could impact acute and chronic cognitive performance, health and healthy ageing. I`m particularly passionate about the design, execution and interpretation of experimental research projects which withstand scientific rigour.

I am also involved in the BBSRC funded Protein for Life project. Protein for life is a collaborative project led by Newcastle University (PI Prof Emma Stevenson) with academic collaborators from The Universities of Bristol, Sheffield, Liverpool and Aberdeen. This project is also supported by seven industry stakeholder partners – Campden BRI, Sainsbury’s, Mondelez International, Bradgate Bakery, Pladis, Nestle and Premier Foods.
