BiographyDr. David Borradale is a lecturer and Accredited Practicing Dietitian in the School of Exercise and Nutrition Sciences in the Faculty of Health. He has taught in the School for over five years and has coordinated eight units, ranging from first year introductory units, through to fourth year capstone units in the the Nutrition Science and Nutrition and Dietetics program.
David completed his PhD at the Institute of Health and Biomedical Innovation. His project investigated the impact of solar radiation on folate levels in childbearing age females. He has published this work in peer-reviewed journals and has presented findings from his research in national and international conferences. Dr. Borradale has a particular interest in the field of nutrigenetics and nutrigenomics. Along with linked areas, such as the study of the microbiome, nutrigenomics promises that a more personalised approach to nutrition advice may be possible in the near future. Currently, his research in this area focuses on the preparedness of the nutrition workforce for coming changes in personalised health delivery.
Summary of main research interests:
- Folic acid, one-carbon metabolism and methylation
- Nutrigenomics and nutrigenetics
- UV radiation's impact on photosensitive nutrients in vivo
