Personal profile

Biography

Dr Ayse Zengin joined the School of Clinical Sciences as a Research Fellow in the Muscle and Bone Health Group in September 2016.

Ayse completed her PhD in a joint project between the Bone Biology and Neuroscience programs at the Garvan Institute of Medical Research in Sydney, Australia in 2012. Upon completion, Ayse worked as a postdoc in the Endocrinology Department of the Ludwig Maximilians University in Munich (Germany) until December 2013. Ayse then moved to Cambridge (UK) where she was a Postdoctoral Scientist at the MRC Human Nutrition Research Unit where she worked with the MRC Unit in The Gambia (Africa) on a musculoskeletal study in ageing men and women. 

Ayse’s main research interests are investigating the muscle-bone relationship within the ageing population, imaging bone with advanced technology and the role of nutrition on skeletal health in the elderly across ethnic populations.
