About Jennie Brand-Miller

Professor Jennie Brand-Miller (aka Janette Cecile Brand) PhD, FAIFST, FNSA (born 1952) holds a Personal Chair in Human Nutrition in the School of Molecular Biosciences at the University of Sydney. She is best known for her research and publications on the glycemic index, and its role in human health. Her research interests focus on all aspects of carbohydrates—diet and diabetes, the glycemic index of foods, insulin resistance, lactose intolerance and oligosaccharides in infant nutrition.

Brand-Miller holds a special interest in evolutionary nutrition and the diet of Australian Aborigines. As a nutrition lecturer in 1981, she was investigating Aboriginal bushfood when she came across the glycemic index, a nutritional concept devised by Dr. David J. Jenkins and colleagues from the University of Toronto. The glycemic index has since changed the way the world thinks about food, nutrition and dieting.
