Dr Dominic Lomiwes

Science Team Leader

I am the Science Team Leader for Immune Health and Physical Performance within the Food Innovation Portfolio, based in Palmerston North. Our team conducts in vitro, animal and human clinical trials to establish scientific evidence for the benefits of foods or their constituents in modulating the immune response during an immune challenge and supporting cognitive function. My current research focuses on investigating the efficacy of foods and bioactive ingredients in enhancing exercise performance and facilitating quicker recovery, as well as improving cognitive performance.
