Nicole Morrissey

Nicole is a 2nd year PhD student at the University of Exeter Medical School. The team she works in looks at how the brain regulates metabolism and appetite and her PhD investigates a potential link between inflammation and metabolism in the brain. The research provides insight into how the function of the brain may change in response to alterations in food intake; such as eating too much or too little.

Before moving to Exeter, Nicole studied at the University of Manchester and undertook an MRes degree in Translational Medicine working on gut-to-brain communication regulating appetite control.
