Associate Professor

Department: Applied Sciences

John Lodge Staffprofile Northumbriauniversity255Dr John Lodge is an Associate Professor in Metabolic Nutrition. John undertook his PhD investigating lipoprotein oxidation at Birkbeck College, University of London where he developed interests in the role of antioxidants in health and disease.

He expanded these interests through post-doctoral positions at the University of California at Berkeley, USA, the Linus Pauling Institute, Oregon State University, USA and the German Institute for Human Nutrition (DIfE), Potsdam, Germany, before securing a Lectureship in Nutritional Biochemistry at the University of Surrey.

At Surrey John increased his research profile through wider activities in nutrient profiling (especially dietary antioxidants) and dietary approaches for health (carbohydrates, fish oils, fruit & vegetables). He then joined Cranfield University as Senior Lecturer in Human Nutrition where he established Nutrition research in their School of Health before joining Northumbria in 2011.  He is a member of the Nutrition Society and Metabolomics Society.
