More information about Colin Kay

Dr. Colin Kay is a native of Canada, but spent nearly 10 years in the United Kingdom establishing his research program before joining the Plants for Human Health Institute. He is trained in nutritional biochemistry and human vascular interventions and controlled dietary feeding trials. His research utilizes human and cell-based studies to investigate the effects of diet on disease. Kay’s research interest includes identifying metabolites of berry consumption as biomarkers of intake and active compounds for the prevention of disease. He is currently using human feeding interventions, as well as cultured vascular and intestinal cells to study the effects of metabolic transformation on the structure and cardiovascular bioactivity of flavonoids.
