Dr. Matthew D. Campbell
I am a Principal Investigator in Human Metabolism in the Faculty of Health Sciences and Wellbeing. I also hold honorary titles at the Wellcome-MRC Institute of Metabolic Science (University of Cambridge), the Leeds Institute for Metabolic and Cardiovascular Medicine (University of Leeds), and Zhejiang Gongshang University.
My research group takes a multidisciplinary approach to understanding the role of nutrition and exercise in the prevention and management of metabolic and cardiovascular disease from the molecular to the whole-body level. I lead a number of research programmes covering two interlinked areas, cardiometabolic health and postprandial handling in response to diet and exercise. My group is investigating which factors influence the cardiometabolic impact of food, the food matrix, and how modulating the composition of food and diet can optimise targeted nutritional strategies to improve the management of diabetes and reduce the risk of complications.
My research has been generously supported by the NIHR, BHF, Diabetes UK, Nutricia Research Foundation, and LiverNorth, in addition to industry sponsorship for investigator-led research including Bristol-Myers Squibb, AbbVie, Dexcom, Medtronic, and Abbott.
