Current Research

The effect of dietary oats on gut and heart health.

Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is the major cause of death and Scotland has amongst the highest mortality rates in Western Europe. Strong epidemiological evidence indicates that high consumption of whole grain foods (WGF) is associated with a lower risk of chronic diseases such as coronary heart disease (CHD), hypertension and type 2 diabetes. Dietary cereals, such as oats, can influence a person's health both directly by impacting on physiological processes, and indirectly via metabolic outputs of the gut microbiota. The current project aims to study the effect of an oat-enriched diet on markers of gut and heart health.

REFRESH Project - Reducing families' exposure to second-hand smoke in the home

The fieldwork stage of the REFRESH project has recently been completed and aimed to study ways in which children's exposure to second-hand smoke in the home can be reduced through motivational interviews with mothers and personalised feedback of air quality in the family home.
