Dr Matthew Campbell
Matthew's research takes a multidiscplinary approach to understanding the role of nutrition and exercise in the prevention and management of metabolic diseases from the molecular to the whole-body level as well as population-level research. Major research interests include: which factors influence the cardiometabolic impact of food formulations in high-risk populations; how can modulating the composition of meals and the matrix of individuals foods optimise targetted nutritional strategies for the clinical and nutritional mangement of metabolic disease.
- The influence of the food matrix on postprandial handling and cardiometablic risk in diabetes.
- The impact of diet, nutrients, and nutritional supplementation on long-term cardiometabolic risk factors.
- The role of exercise and physical activity on metabolic control.
After completing a BSc (Hons) in Sport and Exercise Science, Matthew completed his PhD in 2014, which investigated strategies to avoid exercise-induced hypoglycaemia in type 1 diabetes. Following this, he then completed a post-doctoral fellowship in collaboration with Newcastle University exploring nutritional and insulin dose adjustment strategies to improve mealtime glucose control in type 1 and type 2 diabetes. Matthew joined the School Food Science and Nutrition at the University of Leeds in 2018, after holding various other academic posts in Newcastle and Leeds.
