Featured Scientist

Here at CG we celebrate the work of great scientists by choosing one to spotlight each quarter as our FEATURED SCIENTIST. These brilliant people are quietly working away doing amazing – and often quite under-reported – things! So we like to bring some attention to their efforts as they push forward the boundaries of human knowledge.

Dr. Amrita Vijay

Featured Scientist for Q1, 2024

Dr. Vijay is the Lead Scientific Advisor of our Scientific Advisory Board here at Chuckling Goat, and a Research Associate in Gut Microbiome and Metabolic Health at University of Nottingham. She completed her PhD at King’s College London, where she specialised in salivary and mucosal biology. She then pursued her postdoctoral research with Professor Tim Spector at the TwinsUK, Department of Twin Research and Genetic Epidemiology, King’s College London before moving to Nottingham where she currently works with Professor Ana Valdes, leading dietary intervention studies focussing on gut microbiome and metabolic health both in the UK as well as in India.

Her current research focuses on observational and interventional studies on the role of nutrition, gut microbiome and metabolomics in relation to health and disease. Dr Vijay was recently awarded under the Nottingham Reward Scheme in recognition of her valuable contribution to research for 2020/2021.
