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 1990.  In subsequent years Nora achieved promotion to Senior Lecturer and currently is an Associate 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 120 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. 





 

 

 

 

Bioactivity of dietary phytochemicals.Bioavailability of dietary phytochemicals.Biological effects of sterols and oxysterolsBioactivity of dietary phtochemicals.

My group has developed a number of cell culture models to study the effects and mechanisms of action of a range of carotenoids, tocopherols, flavonoids and other phytochemicals in vitro.  We have focused on the cytoprotective, antioxidant, antigenotoxic and immunomodulatory effects of phytochemicals in cell systems.  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 phytochemical compounds we have also assessed the bioactivity of extracts from a variety of sources including marine, herbs, milk protein hydrolysates, potato extracts and brewers spent grain. 

Bioavailability of dietary phytochemicals

We have successfully established an in vitro bioavailability model employing an in vitro 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 phytochemicals whose bioavailability we have tested to-date are carotenoids and tocopherols.  Additionally, we have examined the effects of various cooking procedures on carotenoid absorption and the effects of dietary fats and fibre on carotenoid bioavailability.  We also developed methodology to separate and identify different carotenoid stereoisomers.  Traditional food processing and preservation methods, especially thermal treatments, induce the formation of cis isomeric forms.  We have assessed if any isomerization of beta-carotene occurs during digestion and we have determined the degree of isomerization of this carotenoid following domestic cooking of a range of green vegetables.

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 content of plant foodstuffs.
