Overview

Professor Peter Davies is the Director of the Children’s Nutrition Research Centre (CNRC) in the School of Medicine at The University of Queensland.

Peter has served on the editorial boards of the International Journal of Body Composition Research, Acta Paediatrica, Annals of Human Biology and the International Journal of Obesity. Peter is also Associate Editor for the Annals of Nutrition and Metabolism.

Prior to this UQ appointment in October 2000, Peter held appointment with the Faculty of Health at Queensland University of Technology. He was also staff at the Medical Research Council’s Dunn Nutrition Unit in Cambridge, UK within the Energy Metabolism in Childhood Group prior to moving to Australia in October 1995.

He has published over 450 articles and papers in the field of nutrition, energy metabolism and growth and development in both health and disease in infants and children.

Peter has been a member of a number of expert panels and international groups related to energy expenditure and energy metabolism in children. He has also had a long-term interest specifically in infant nutrition and this area forms one of the major research interests within the Children’s Nutrition Research Centre. Much of Peter’s work has utilised novel and new isotopic tracers to investigate energy metabolism and body composition in health and disease.

Peter has also been a member of the Board of Save the Children Australia, a member of the Queensland Minister of Health Food Safety Advisory Committee, Honorary Secretary of the Nutrition Society of Australia, and a past president of Nutrition Australia. He is formarly a member of the NHMRC Dietary Guidelines Working Comittee and chairs a number of advisory boards in the nutrition and pharmaceutical industries.
