About

José C. Fernández-Cao is a research assistant in the Department of Nutrition and Dietetic at UDA. He completed his PhD in nutritional epidemiology at URV, assessing the relationship between iron and risk of diabetes mellitus in the PREDIMED study. He made a pre-doctoral stay at UCLAN, taking part in the enforcement of a systematic review and meta-analysis within the EURRECA project. He is concerned on nutritional epidemiology, biostatistics, systematic reviews and meta-analyses. His research interests are focused on exploring the role of diet and lifestyle components on risk of non-communicable diseases; the intake, status and metabolism of minerals on the onset and evolution of cardio-metabolic disease; and the effect of ethnicity and environment on lifestyle and cardio-metabolic risk.
