  • Visiting Research Fellows

  • Professor Henry was director of the Functional Food Centre at Oxford Brookes University from 2010 – 2013. He is now a Visiting Research Fellow for the centre since his move to the Singapore Institute for Clinical Studies in 2013, where he is the director of the Clinical Nutrition Research Centre. His major research interests are in Energy regulation, Functional Foods, Obesity, Glycaemic index, energy and protein metabolism and nutrition in the elderly.
    My current interests lie at the interface between nutrition science, government agencies, food manufacturers, health care professionals and consumers with a view to encourage innovation and good health. I am actively engaged in efforts to establish health claims under the auspices of recent EU legislation. A particular focus is probiotics where I play a key role in the Global Alliance for Probiotics. I am also a member of the Science Committee of the Sabri Ulker Food Research Foundation (SUGAV), a major initiative to improve public health in Turkey.
