National Science Week Lecture
Apple with nutritional information Dr Nigel Lambert will explore what we mean by ‘food’ and what the links are between food and ‘health’, and how these associations have radically changed in the UK over the past 100 years, in his lecture at the University of Lincoln next week.

The public lecture is part of National Science Week 2009 and will show how nutrition has moved ‘beyond vitamins and cod liver oil’. It will also highlight some of the exciting challenges currently facing nutritionists, such as personalised nutrition, consumerism, functional foods, food allergies and nutrigenomics.

Nigel Lambert started his career when he joined the Institute of Food Research (IFR) at Norwich in 1984. Nigel redirected his talents in 1990, moving into  working within Psychodynamic Counselling - whilst still working part-time for the IFR. The research was part of the contribution to understanding the links between fruit and vegetable consumption and cancer protection.

Nigel currently works as a Freelance Research Consultant.

This lecture is open to the public and free to attend. It will take place in the Jackson Lecture Theatre in the Main Administrative Building – Brayford Campus, Lincoln, from 5:00 pm on Wednesday 11th March.

People are welcome to just arrive on the evening although it is advised to register your place in advance by contacting Emma Jubbs by email ejubbs@lincoln.ac.uk or telephone 01522 886286.
