Professor Christine Feinle-Bisset
Prof Christine Feinle-Bisset is a nutritional scientist with an undergraduate degree from the University of Stuttgart-Hohenheim (Germany). Following a PhD in gastrointestinal physiology at the University of Sheffield, UK, and a post-doc at the University of Zurich, Switzerland, she joined the University of Adelaide in 2000, and was appointed to Professor in 2010. She has been an NHMRC-funded Senior Research Fellow for over 15 years, and is currently a chief investigator in the NHMRC-funded Centre of Research Excellence in Translating Nutritional Science to Good Health. Her research is clinical and relates to the impact of nutrients on appetite, GI motor and hormone function and perception, in health, obesity and functional dyspepsia. It has contributed significantly to current concepts of the role of gastrointestinal mechanisms in the regulation of energy intake in health and obesity, and symptom generation in functional dyspepsia. The overarching aim of her work is to develop novel, nutrient-based treatment approaches for these disorders.
