Fatima Chleilat

MSc Graduate (2014 - 2016), University of Guelph, Human Health & Nutritional Sciences

Fatima’s research is nutrigenomic-oriented, assessing genetic variation in salt taste receptors and how these variations may impact eating behaviour and metabolic outcomes. She is also responsible for all knowledge transfer and translation endeavours of the GFHS- constantly updating Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter.

Fatima joined the Guelph Family Health Study because it was an extremely unique opportunity; the research peaked her interest and the investigators were so welcoming. What’s more was that months before the study even piloted, senior administration at the University of Guelph were already talking about it with great enthusiasm. She just had to be part of this. She knew it was going to be an unreal and very rewarding experience and she wasn’t wrong. She loves it!
