Personal profile

Biography

Dr McSorley is currently a Senior Lecturer in Human Nutrition within the School of Biomedical Sciences and is the Associated Director of Research within the  Northern Ireland Centre for Food & Health (NICHE). She received her PhD from Ulster University in the area of nutrition, biochemistry and immunology specialising in omega 3 fatty acids and the autoimmune condition systemic lupus erythematosus. Dr McSorley has a BSc in Biomedical Sciences and is a registered Medical Laboratory Scientist.

Dr McSorley currently leads the research subgroup ‘Nutritional immunology in health and disease’ and contributes significantly to the ‘Marine bioactives in health and disease’ and ‘Nutrition, toxicology and child development’ subgroups. Emeir is a recipient of the Ulster University Distinguished Research Fellowship (2014) and the Ulster University Students Union Inspirational Teacher Award (2015). Dr McSorley's research interests are focused on understanding the influence of diet on aspects on cell function and human health, in particular the effects of vitamin D and n-3 PUFAs in relation to inflammation and immunity, sports performance, bone health, cancer and pregnancy. Dr McSorley is actively involved in marine functional food research focused on the development of marine bioactives for incorporation into functional foods. She is also a core member of the Seychelles Child Development Study investigating the risk benefits of consuming fish during pregnancy.
