Dr Aaron M. Lett is a Research and Teaching Fellow within the Section for Nutrition Research, Imperial College London. He is pathway lead for Diabetes and Obesity, and co-pathway lead for Human Nutrition on the MRes Clinical Research programme, a role he combines with research within the Section for Nutrition Research.

Through a primarily applied in vivo human and evidence synthesis approach, his principal academic interests centre around food structure, gastrointestinal function and metabolic response.

His clinical educational research interests are centred around research skill development and Teaching-Research-Practice Nexus at strategic institutional level, in order to address and anticipate the changing needs and associated requirements of clinical research and practice.
