Dr Cathy Slack One of Aston's new research talents, Cathy's interests focus on understanding the biological mechanisms of ageing using the fruit fly to study the molecular and cellular mechanisms that govern ageing and its associated functional decline. She has over 15 years of hands-on research experience with her work being widely published. In recognition of her achievements within her field, Cathy was the 2015 recipient of the Korenchevsky Award from the British Society for Research on Ageing. Ageing, molecular mechanisms, cellular mechanisms
Dr Claire Farrow Claire's interests concern the factors influencing eating behaviour and weight gain or loss, particularly in children. Her research explores how adults influence child feeding, eating behaviour and weight through the feeding practices and behaviours they use. She is also interested in the, often inaccurate, perceptions of child weight. Claire has helped develop three different apps to support healthy eating in children, or help and advise parents with concerns about their child's feeding. eating behaviours, overweight, food choices, child food preferences
