About

Michael Müller is a professor of systems nutrition and nutrigenomics at the University of East Anglia (Norwich/UK) and director of the Food and Health Alliance at the Norwich Research Park. He was Professor of Nutrition, Metabolism and Genomics at the Wageningen University, NL (until January 2014). He is a renowned expert in the area of molecular nutrition related to lipid homoeostasis, nutrigenomics and nutritional systems biology. His work was focusing on the molecular mechanisms underlying genome-wide effects of in particular fatty acids and proteins on metabolic health and plasticity. His group in Norwich is focusing specifically on the gut-liver axis, the role of the microbiota for the small intestine and its impact for systemic health. He was scientific director of the Netherlands Nutrigenomics Centre until end of 2013. He is visiting professor at Nanijng Agricultural University. Prof. Müller is/was a member of the editorial boards of 10 journals, i.e. “BMC Genomics” (associate editor), "European Journal of Nutrition" (section editor "Nutrigenomics") and “PLOS One” (academic editor). He is (co)author of more than 230 peer-reviewed publications with more than 10000 citations. His H-factor of 63 and he is a member of the “Faculty of 1000” (Biology/Physiology)
