Dr. Samantha M Solon-Biet
My research investigates the complex role nutrition plays in mediating various aspects of metabolic health, reproduction, appetite and ageing. A major focus of my research is to explore how dietary balance influences the underlying biochemical and physiological processes that drive metabolic and behavioural responses.
My research works towards investigating and discovering novel nutritional interventions that can delay the development of age-related disease, improve health and reproduction and ultimately extend the length of healthy life.
Working at the Charles Perkins Centre at the University of Sydney, I am supported by a NHMRC Peter Doherty Biomedical Fellowship and a University of Sydney SOAR Fellowship.
