About Ida Schoultz

Ida Schoultz defended her thesis entitled "Bacterial-epihelial interactions in Crohn's disease" in 2009 at Linköping University, after completing a post-doctoral period at the University of Calgary (2010-2012), Ida joined Örebro University to continue her research. Since 2019 Ida is an Associate Professor at the Department of Medical Sciences where she leads the research group "The Ageing Gut - in health and inflammation". Ida's project aims to map the mechanisms behind age-associated gastrointestinal problems but also understand the reasons behind why inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) is now increasing among older adults. By understanding the mechanisms behind gastrointestinal disorders and IBD in the elderly, important puzzle pieces are added to the understanding of how the gastrointestinal tract ages in a healthy state and how gut health can be promoted among older adults. Ida has an expertise in experimental methods for studying the gastrointestinal barrier, particularly the Ussing chamber technology, which makes it possible to study how different substances but also bacteria pass over the intestinal mucosa and affect the barrier function of the intestine. In 2019, Ida is also particpiating in the Social Impact Lab to design a model with the aim to bring knowledge regarding gut health and how it can be promoted among older adults out to society. Ida is frequently invited as a lectures for patient organizations as well as for regional and national meetings for healthcare professionals and dieticians. At the Department of Medical Sciences, Ida is the head of one of the departments units and are engaged in educational issues at the Medical program.
