About Karl Fraser

Dr Karl Fraser is a Senior Research Scientist, Nutritional Metabolomics, Food Nutrition & Health team in the Food Bio-based Products Group at AgResearch. He has been involved in scientific research for 25 years and as such has worked on a diverse range of projects, ranging from those related to forage based agricultural systems i.e. forage, meat and milk metabolomics, to more recently biomarker discovery in the area of human health and nutrition. He has a wide range of experience in analytical chemistry and begun working in the area of metabolomics in 2005.

Karl is the lead metabolomics researcher for the High-Value Nutrition National Science Challenge and is involved in projects ranging from phenotyping a 'functional gut disorder' cohort, to researching early biomarkers of type-2 diabetes in an Asian population, to the impacts (measured by metabolomics) of consuming New Zealand meat and milk products. He is currently involved in developing a 'systems nutrition' approach to understanding mechanisms of nutrition on human health and well-being. He is the first or co-author of over 65 peer-reviewed journal articles across a broad range of topics including animal metabolism, meat and milk flavour, endophyte alkaloid analysis, and metabolomic studies on plants, microbes and animal products.
