Neil F .Shay, Ph.D., is Professor and Chair in the Department of Food Science and Human Nutrition at the University of Florida. His research interests include identifying how dietary compounds such as soy isoflavones influence disease states such as cardiovascular disease and diabetes. His laboratory has expertise in studying interactions between botanicals and nuclear receptors which regulate metabolic processes related to lipid metabolism and drug turnover. Dr. Shay is also interested in how botanicals, dietary supplements, fatty acids and dietary fiber interact with the gastro-intestinal system and cellular regulatory systems.
