Jamie Newbold joined Scotlands's Rural College (SRUC) as Acadamic Director in 2017.
He graduated from the University of Newcastle-upon-Tyne with BSc Honours in Agricultural Biochemistry and Nutrition in 1981. He went on to do a PhD on microbial metabolism of lactic acid in the rumen at the Hannah Research Institute in Scotland. Prior to joining SRUC he was professor of Animal Science and Director of Research and Enterprise at the Institute of Biological and Rural Sciences, Aberyswyth University, Wales.
His research is focused on understanding and manipulating gut ecosystems to improve animal productivity while reducing the environmental impact of animal husbandry. He has published over 230 papers in peer-reviewed journals. He has filed eight patents, four of which are currently licensed to commercial partners for further development and exploitation. He is the former British Society of Animal Science president and former Editor in Chief of PNS for the Nutrition Society. He is a fellow of the Royal Society of Biology, a fellow of the Learned Society of Wales and an associate of the Royal Agricultural Society.
At ISRP 2019, Prof Charles James Newbold will give his lecture on “Ruminal microbiome and microbial metabolome: Effects of diet and host” during the session on “The rumen as mediator between diet and host metabolism”.
