Rowett Research highlighted in the BioBusiness awards 2021

Professor Alexandra Johnstone has been named as a Mover and Shaker 2021 as awarded by the annual BioBusinsess report. The individuals who are named in the report are outstanding and innovative leaders who create new opportunities for progress in the life sciences and healthcare.

Alex has received this honour for her research into understanding the importance of meal timing for health. This area of work known as chrono-nutrition, explores the relationship between when we eat and our health, and understanding that when we eat can be as important as what we eat.

Alex’s research in this area into meal timing and calorie intake has shown that eating more in the morning can help appetite control, and can help guide nutrition policy and healthy living advice. Alex has also demonstrated that differences in food energy use between morning and evening is due to resting circadian rhythm energy expenditure.

Alex Johnstone received funding from the Scottish Government as part of the Strategic Research Programme, the BBSRC, and the MRC.
