Areas of Specialization/Research
Dr Finley is interested in foods which enhance health, particularly related to obesity and reducing the side effects of obesity. Specific interests are in the development of culinary quality in low calorie foods and ingredients. Additionally, he has an active program on reducing chronic inflammation with dietary intervention. Inflammation is the basis of any of the side effects of obesity and diabetes. Food ingredients and altered diet can reduce or delay these adverse side effects.

Future Research Vision:

  • Establish healthy, great tasting products that are culturally acceptable
  • Develop combinations of ingredients that reduce chronic inflammation in cardiovascular tissue
  • Establish technologies to improve absorption and bioavailability of health promoting compounds
  • Develop new and innovative low calorie ingredients and bulking agents
