Medical Research at the University of Sydney

Sydney Medical School is dedicated to improving human health through research translation and innovation at the highest level. It encompasses an extensive research portfolio that crosses from basic sciences to clinical medicine and public health across our network of affiliated hospitals and research institutes. Together with our research partners we are contributing to a greater understanding of human health which is translating into improved health and care for patients.

The clinical study about PANATURA® GI is lead by Professor Jennie Brand-Miller.

She is internationally recognised for her groundbreaking work that developed a way to measure the body’s absorption of carbohydrates, now commonly known as the ‘glycemic index’. Battling years of criticism and scepticism, she is now at the forefront of research that has the potential to help millions of people avoid chronic diseases associated with obesity, such as diabetes. “GI foods push your body to extremes,” Brand-Miller says. “Switching to eating mainly low GI carbs that slowly trickle glucose into your blood stream keeps your energy levels balanced and means you will feel fuller for longer between meals,” she says.

Brand-Miller is currently Professor of Human Nutrition at the University of Sydney. She was a finalist in the 2006 Australian of the Year Award, and her books have sold millions of copies around the world. Should you be interested in reading more about Professor Jennie Brand-Miller click here .
