Research Profile

Nora O'Brien

Biography

                                                   

Professor Nora O'Brien holds a BSc (Food Science) from UCC, a MS (Nutrition) from the University of Minnesota, and a PhD (Nutritional Biochemistry) from Cornell University.  She was a Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of Louvain in Belgium before returning to a Lectureship in Nutrition in her native Cork in December 1989.  In subsequent years Nora achieved promotion to Senior Lecturer and currently is Professor in Nutrition.  

Nora has substantial teaching commitments at undergraduate level which she finds both fulfilling and very enjoyable.  Her research programme on the relationships between nutrition and health has grown very successfully through the years.  Over 6 million in research funds have been generated from national and international funding sources, including a Science Foundation Ireland Investigator Award, to support her team's work.  Over 50 individuals have worked under Nora's supervision at MSc, PhD and Post-doctoral levels.  
The team's work has resulted in well over 160 peer-reviewed research publications in the international scientific literature as well as numerous conference presentations, invited book chapters and reviews.  Research conducted by Nora's team has contributed significantly to increased understanding of the relationship between nutrition and health and, in particular, the beneficial role of fruit and vegetables in the diet. 

Over the years many members of her team have received awards for their work.  Professor O'Brien has been a recipient of the Royal Irish Academy Nutrition Medal in 2000.  She has also been active in public service including membership of the Irish Council for Bioethics and the Scientific Advisory Committee of the Food Safety Promotion Board.  Nora is a member of the Nutrition Society, the Carotenoid Society as well as other professional groups.  She has given many public lectures on her research interests and other nutrition-related topics. 

 

Research Interests

                         

Bioactivity of dietary components

My group has developed a number of cell culture models to study the effects and mechanisms of action of a range of dietary components.  We have focused on the cytoprotective, antioxidant, antigenotoxic and immunomodulatory effects of these components in cell systems.  The range of dietary components we have studied to-date include carotenoids, tocopherols, flavonoids and other phytochemicals.  Our basic research in this area is important in helping to understand the fundamental mechanisms of action of these phytochemicals and also has considerable practical commercial relevance in underpinning development of the emerging markets for Functional Foods.  In addition to individual chemical compounds, we have also assessed the bioactivity of extracts from seaweed, herbs, potato peel extracts and brewers' spent grain. Currently, we are investigating the bioactivity of protein hydrolysates extracted from a variety of sources including milk, meat, fish, barley, potatoes and flaxseed.  

 

Bioavailability of dietary components

We have successfully established an in vitro bioavailability model employing a simulated digestion procedure and differentiated Caco-2 cells grown on transwell plates.  We have published many studies demonstrating the validity and usefulness of the model.  The main chemicals whose bioavailability we have tested to-date are carotenoids and tocopherols. 

 

Biological effects of sterols and oxysterols

Our work has focused on the cytotoxic, genotoxic and cell signalling effects of cholesterol and phytosterol oxidation products in cellular model systems.  The potential protective effect of phytochemicals against the toxic action of oxysterols has also been studied.  Additionally, we are systematically analysing the phytosterol and oxyphytosterol contents of plant foodstuffs.

 

Human Nutrition in the Developing World

In addition to longstanding teaching activities in this area, we are also involved in relevant research activities.  Currently, these include the AGRIDIET project which is funded by Irish Aid.  This project involves investigation of agriculture-nutrition linkages in different agro-ecological zones of Ethiopia and Tanzania.  Our group is contributing the nutrition expertise for the project.  Extensive fieldwork has been completed and data analysis is ongoing.  Recently, our group has also been successful in obtaining significant funding from the Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine (DAFM) for a 4 year project whose objective is the development of a novel Fortified Blended Food suitable for use by the World Food Programme and other humanitarian organisations.
