Lines of Research

Dr Lopez-Garcia research interests include:

-Epidemiology and prevention of obesity and cardiovascular disease through diet and lifestyle.

-Diet and the risk of physical function impairment, frailty and disability in the older population.

-Metabolomics in frailty and disability. 

Dr Lopez-Garcia has assessed in detail the effect of the Mediterranean dietary patterns, coffee, meat and dairy consumption, in the risk of CVD and disability, using data from large population studies in the USA, UK and Spain. She has also examined the biological mechanisms that may explain these associations, including inflammation and endothelial dysfunction, markers of glucose metabolism and leptin, and more recently metabolomics profiles of physical impairment and functional disability. 

Dr Lopez-Garcia is also an Associate Researcher at IMDEA Food.
