About our research

The aim of our research is to understand how dietary factors and in particular plant-foods, influence physiological processes in the intestine with consequences for several of our most common diseases associated with chronic low-grade inflammation.

Our aim is to establish a competence platform at KBM for the study of health-promoting interactions between microflora, food and the gastrointestinal tract.

Our research is basic and hypothesis-driven, exploiting the many relevant methodological developments of modern biomedical research.
