The title of her PhD thesis is “The effects of whole diet interactions on vascular health and inflammatory and fatty acid status” and the primary aim was to investigate the effects of a year-long whole diet intervention on cardiovascular health and inflammation in an older adult UK based population, focusing on clinical measures of endothelial dysfunction and arterial stiffening. This was part of a large multi-centre clinical trial known as NU-AGE. Colette joined theCentre for Vitamin D and Nutrition Research in 2015 as a postdoctoral researcher and is primarily involved inconducting mathematical modelling of the influence of UVB availability in European member states on population serum 25(OH)D as well as integration with data on dietary inputs of the vitamin in terms of increasing serum 25(OH)D as part of the ODIN Project.
