Dr Abdulmannan Fadel



Dr. Abdulmannan Fadel is a Senior Lecturer in Nutrition, he joined Liverpool John Moores University in Sep 2019. Prior to this, he was a Research Fellow in Nutritional Analytical Biochemistry at the University of Leeds.
Dr. Fadel's research lies at the interface of the crossroads of fundamental experimental nutraceuticals and human immune response, with a specific focus on understanding the mechanism of nutraceuticals action.
His new research is currently focusing on understanding the digestion of food and how digested food components interact with the small intestine and large intestine environment.
Dr Fadels' research is also focusing on studying novel methods to improve dietary fibres and antioxidants extraction and modification from food waste.


2017, Manchester Metropolitan University, United Kingdom, PhD in Nutrition and Inflammation
