Biography

Academic Qualifications

2002: BSc. Nutritional Sciences, University College Cork

2007: PhD Nutritional Sciences, University College Cork [Thesis Title: The role of fruit, vegetables & seafood in maintaining metabolic and bone health]

2012: PG Certificate in Teaching and Learning in Higher Education, University College Cork

Dr Alice Lucey is a research fellow in the Vitamin D Research Group at the School of Food & Nutritional Sciences. She is a registered nutritionist (UK Voluntary Register of Nutritionists) whose research interests focus on the roles of vitamins D, K and dietary bioactives (including fish/fish oil, egg peptides, phytochemicals) in the maintenance of cardiovascular and bone health.

Over the past 10 years, Dr Lucey has acquired extensive research experience in the implementation of dietary intervention studies, having successfully coordinated five National and European-funded supplementation studies in younger and older adults. Currently, Dr Lucey is employed on the European Commission FP7 funded BACCHUS (Beneficial effects of bioactive compounds in humans) project (2012-2016); where she is co-ordinates the human studies work package. This includes management of a further six dietary intervention studies at a European level as well as implementation of a dietary intervention study at UCC.   

In addition, Alice is the co-ordinator of the Irish Department of Agriculture & the Marine funded Cardio-Rubus Project (2013-2017) which attracted €600,000 in research income. In 2015, Dr Lucey will co-ordinate a further food-based dietary intervention investigating the effect of blackberry polyphenols on cardiovascular and metabolic health outcomes, as part of the Cardio-Rubus project. 

Alice has substantial expertise in measuring biomarkers of nutritional status as well as a comprehensive knowledge of good clinical practice and the statistical approaches required for the interpretation of findings in human studies. She has presented her research at both national and international scientific meetings and has published over 14 peer-reviewed papers.

Dr Lucey supervises PhD, MSc and BSc students in their nutrition research projects at UCC. She also lectures in nutrition on the BEd (Sports Studies & Physical Education) and Diploma in Food Science & Technology courses at UCC.
