This year’s prestigious Nutrition Society Silver Medal has been awarded to Dr Bernadette Moore, Associate Professor in the School of Food Science and Nutrition at the University of Leeds.

The annual award, which recognises scientific excellence in the field of nutrition, was presented to Dr Bernadette Moore for her research 'From Sugar to Liver Fat and Public Health: Systems Biology Driven Studies in Understanding Non-Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease Pathogenesis'.

“I am incredibly honoured to win this prestigious award from the Nutrition Society,” said Dr Moore of her successful application.

“It has been really lovely hearing congratulations and well wishes from past students and current and former colleagues and friends. I am beyond honoured and I am really looking forward to sharing the work of my group over the last ten years with my colleagues at the Summer Conference” she added.

Applications for the Silver Medal are judged by a panel of nutrition experts, from different institutions, who take into consideration a number of factors such as; external recognition, evidence of extensive academic publications and evidence of a record of sustained research funding.

Dr Moore’s award-winning lecture will be presented at this year’s Summer Conference: Getting energy balance right at the University of Leeds. The conference will address a variety of influencing factors on energy balance and different needs across a person’s lifespan and will feature a number of lectures from leading academics within the nutrition field.
