Aoife Ryan

Biography


Dr Aoife Ryan graduated from Trinity College Dublin/Dublin Institute of Technology with a BSc (1H) Human Nutrition and Dietetics and was the recipient of a Trinity College gold medal. She initially worked as a surgical oncology dietitian at St. James's Hospital for 7 years during which time she completed her PhD at the Department of Surgery, Trinity College Dublin. She then moved to New York and took up a faculty position as Assistant Professor of Nutrition & Dietetics at New York University. In 2011 she returned to Ireland and joined the academic staff at University College Cork where she is now a Senior lecturer.  

Aoife is a CORU Registered Dietitian and also holds a Postgraduate Diploma in Teaching & Learning in Higher Education from UCC.  Aoife has taught nutrition and dietetics to undergraduates and postgraduates at Trinity College Dublin, New York University and University College Cork in: Nutritional Sciences, Dietetics, Nursing, Medicine, Dentistry, Speech and Language Therapy, Food Marketing and Public Health.  She is the programme director of both the Post Graduate Diploma in Nutritional Sciences and the MSc Human Nutrition & Dietetics which is opening in Sept 2020. 

Aoife’s main area of research interest is the effect of cancer on nutritional status. Her current research programme focuses on: (1) Computed tomography (CT) diagnosed cancer cachexia and sarcopenia and the impact on quality of life, toxicity to chemotherapy treatment and survival (2) the development of functional foods to treat anorexia of aging and disease (3) role of nutrition in the prevention and treatment of cancer.  Aoife is currently principle investigator on a number of randomised controlled trials based in Cork in cancer populations. Aoife has attracted €3m in research income through competitive funding programmes (e.g. HRB, Industry funding, FHI, SFI).  She has received a number of awards for her research including: 'Research Dietitian of the Year' from the Irish Nutrition and Dietetic Institute;  two Irish Healthcare Awards and both the Julie Wallace Award and the Cuthbertson Award from the Nutrition Society. Aoife has published many scientific journal articles and also five cookbooks books for cancer patients which have all been professionally endorsed.
