Module Leaders:

Dr. Suzanne Barr

Senior Clinical Teaching Fellow

Faculty of MedicineDepartment of Metabolism, Digestion and Reproduction, Imperial College London

Dr Suzanne Barr is a senior Registered Dietitian with interests in non-communicable diseases, and in particular, women’s health and healthcare technologies. She completed her Undergraduate degree in Nutrition at the University of Glasgow, Masters degree in Dietetics at Queen Margaret University, Edinburgh and PhD in Human Nutrition at Roehampton University, London. Suzanne worked clinically within the NHS before undertaking her PhD which investigated dietary management strategies for women with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), including implementing a low glycaemic index diet to improve insulin sensitivity. Suzanne was previously employed as a research dietitian at King's College London on a large multi-centre gestational diabetes prevention trial (UK Better Eating and Pregnancy Trial (UPBEAT)). Suzanne joined Imperial College London in 2011 as a Senior Teaching Fellow for the MSc Preventive Cardiology programmes, and moved to join the MRes Clinical Research (Human Nutrition pathway) in the Department of Metabolism, Digestion and Reproduction as a Senior Clinical Teaching Fellow in 2018.

Kevin Walsh

Teaching Fellow in Nutrition and Dietetics

Faculty of MedicineDepartment of Metabolism, Digestion and Reproduction, Imperial College London

Kevin qualified with a BSc. (Hons) in Human Nutrition and Dietetics in 2009 from Trinity College Dublin, Ireland. From 2009-2013 he pursued a clinical career as a Registered Dietitian in the NHS, during which time he specialised in nutrition support for rehabilitation. After completing his MRes with distinction in Clinical Research (Human Nutrition) in 2014 at Imperial College London, he received a scholarship from the Institute of Global Health Innovation to study for a PhD.

His main research interests are in the use of metabonomics (chiefly 1H NMR spectroscopy) and metataxonomics (16S rRNA profiling), in conjunction with clinical, anthropometric and dietary data to examine responses to severe childhood anaemia and malnutrition. The project which forms the basis of my PhD is a sub-study of the large TRACT transfusion trial, comparing treatment modalities for severe anaemia in children in sub-Saharan Africa. This sub-study aims to characterise the gut microbiota and host metabolism changes in severe anaemia and in response to treatment. He also work on several trials exploring metabolism in severe childhood malnutrition, including an interventional study to develop a nutritional intervention to modify the gut microbiota in severe malnutrition using legumes (MIMBLE).
