Dr. Sohail Mushtaq is an associate professor at the University of Chester and course leader for MSc Human Nutrition. Sohail embarked on his academic career reading for a BSc in Biochemistry followed by an MSc in Immunology at the University of Essex. He began his professional research career at the University of Reading as a research assistant in a cardiovascular laboratory investigating the role of LDL oxidation in atherosclerosis. Sohail then completed his PhD in Nutritional Biochemistry at Nottingham Trent University. This involved investigating the effects of dietary supplementation of conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) on body composition and lipid metabolism in humans, as well as evaluating CLA intake in the UK. Immediately after gaining his PhD, Sohail joined the Human Nutrition Unit at the University of Sheffield as a Postdoctoral Research Associate, working on a Food Standards Agency funded intervention study to determine the functional significance of marginal riboflavin status, with particular respect to iron absorption, in young women.

In addition, Sohail also worked on a BBSRC funded project investigating role of riboflavin on the cell cycle, and to map its precise cellular effects in terms of alterations at molecular and proteomic level.
