Dr Michael Zulyniak

Trained and experienced as a clinical kinesiologist, I undertook my PhD to evaluate the differences in metabolism between normal weight and obese humans and how these differernces govern a person's risk of diabetes.

In light of my cross-discipline interests in nutrition, genomics, epidemiology, physical activity, and molecular physiology, I have a keen interest in cardiovascular health and the intertwined role of nutrition and lifestyle towards improving cardiovascular health and minimizing disease risk, such as obesity, type-2 diabetes, and cardiovascular disease.

Obtaining a masters in Nutrition will provide you with the skills and the opportunity to pursue an exciting and interesting career in this important area.This course brings together students from many countries with a wide range of backgrounds providing opportunities to learn from peers as well as staff. You will complete modules on all aspects of nutrition from physiology to policy and finish with a summer project carrying out original research. We look forward to welcoming you to Leeds.
