Dr Matthew Piper is a Royal Society University Research Fellow based at the Institute of Healthy Ageing at University College London.
Matthew Piper’s research in his own words:
Dietary restriction (DR or calorie restriction) is an evolutionarily conserved intervention that extends healthy lifespan. I am interested in the nutrients and molecular mechanisms required to elicit this effect – in particular the role of protein. Knowledge of these interactions will aid our understanding of the role of nutrient balance in adult health, appetite and longevity.
