Research interests

Dr Goff has undertaken extensive research in the field of nutrition and type 2 diabetes. Her research expertise focuses on nutritional physiology in cardiometabolic disease. She has worked on a number of large scale dietary intervention trials, including the RISCK study focused on the metabolic syndrome, the CRESSIDA study focused on reducing cardiovascular disease risk, and the UPBEAT study focused on prevention of gestational diabetes.

Dr Goff currently runs a programme of research focused on type 2 diabetes in ethnic minority groups. In work funded by Diabetes UK she is investigating how ethnicity impacts on the pathophysiological development of type 2 diabetes, studying, in depth, the role of ectopic fat deposition, insulin sensitivity and beta-cell function. In a programme of research funded by a National Institute of Health Research fellowship she is developing and evaluating a culturally-tailored diabetes self-management programme for African and Caribbean communities, using co-design and complex interventions methodologies (www.heal-d.co.uk).
