Beverly Muhlhausler
Senior Research Fellow
School of Agriculture, Food and Wine
Faculty of Sciences

I am a NHMRC Career Development Award Fellow (Level 2) and lead the Obesity and Metabolic Health Division of the FOODplus Research Centre at the University of Adelaide.My work on the impact of maternal overnutrition on the programming of obesity and metabolic disease has made a significant contribution to current understanding of how exposure to maternal obesity and/or an excess nutrient supply before birth acts to alter the development of key systems involved in the regulation of energy balance. A key focus of my current research is identifying and testing nutritional interventions which can be applied during the perinatal period to improve metabolic health through the life-course, and I am currently leading basic science projects and clinical trials in this area. Since 2008, my work has included a specific focus on the role of maternal omega-3 fatty acid supplementation in determining growth and metabolic health of the infant and child, and I have published 15 original research papers and 4 reviews in the fatty acid field since 2012.
