Given the challenging workload of today's university academic, and the time demands of writing a book, I could never have balanced all sides of my day without the constant support of my family, and so I acknowledge both my wife Jill and daughter Rebecca who continue to keep me buoyant in my personal and professional life, and who pick up the pieces when the pressure gets too much.
It has been my privilege to work with many kind, generous and able scientists over the years. Their encouragement and objective criticism have helped me develop my own perspective on the subject of molecular nutrition, and I hope I can continue a long and prosperous relationship with many of them. I would like to single out Dr. Robert Leeming as a particularly important mentor in my career path.
I'm fortunate to work within a friendly and supportive structure at the University of Newcastle, with many of my immediate colleagues sharing at least some of my research interests. The interactions I have with these colleagues and my postgraduate and myriad undergraduate human nutrition students help me to develop and focus ideas -1 value these interactions greatly, not least in terms of the interesting opinions and views on current trends within my discipline area that often emerge. I thank all my former students, present students, and colleagues who are simply too numerous to mention. Each one of you has contributed in some small way to this literary synthesis.
