Tammy Tong

Tammy Tong, Senior Fellow and Senior Nutritional Epidemiologist at Nuffield Department of Population Health, has been awarded a UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) Future Leaders Fellowship.

Dr Tong’s research programme, which will initially run for four years, will assess how dietary proteins and associated indicators, including circulating proteins found in the blood, may influence the development of common age-related diseases such as different subtypes of stroke, hip fractures and vascular dementia. Understanding the relationships between both dietary and blood proteins and these diseases may help to identify future prevention and treatment strategies.
