"Bioactivity of Milk Proteins is Modulated by Processing"

Dr. Chatterton has 15 years experience from the dairy industry, working in R&D at Arla Foods Ingredients, Denmark. 

He is currently an Associate Professor at the Department of Food Science, University of Copenhagen and previously jointly at the Section of Comparative Pediatrics and Nutrition, Department of Veterinary and Animal Sciences, Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences, University of Copenhagen.

Chatterton is responsible for graduate & post-graduate teaching of students in a wide range of topics related to the bioactivity of milk proteins & peptides and the effects of industrial processing. His research is applied to the isolation of milk proteins & pre-clinical documentation of the effects of milk processing on bovine milk protein ingredients to be used for a new generation of infant formulas, thereby bringing the protein composition of these closer to that of human milk & he uses models to study this (rhesus monkey, cell culture & more recently preterm piglet studies). He extensively utilize purification and protein chemistry techniques, including proteomics and glycobiology.

BSc degree (Biochemistry), Dundee University, Scotland; MSc (Biostructural Chemistry), University of Aarhus, Denmark; Ph.D. (Molecular Biology), University of Aarhus, Denmark (partly at Dept of Nutrition, University of California at Davis, USA).
