Professor James Betts
Since arriving at the University of Bath in 2005, Professor Betts has conducted numerous randomised controlled trials to explore metabolic regulation in response to various dietary stimuli, with a particular interest in the links between nutrient timing (i.e. chrononutrition) and human health. This work was formally recognised in 2015 when James was presented the Nutrition Society Cuthbertson Medal at the Royal Society of Medicine for 'excellence in clinical nutrition and metabolism research'. Professor Betts has supervised many PhD students through their doctoral research training and welcomes interest from prospective applicants for study within the field of nutrition and metabolism. In 2018 he received the University's Mary Tasker Award for excellence in teaching.
