About Julia Sabet
Julia received an M.S. (2012) and Ph.D. (2015) in Biochemical and Molecular Nutrition from the Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy at Tufts University, in Boston, USA. For her doctoral thesis, she investigated the effects of paternal B vitamin intake on offspring health and gene expression in a mouse model.
Julia joined the Nutrition-Gut-Brain Interactions Research Centre in 2015 as a postdoctoral researcher. She is currently investigating gut barrier function in the elderly and the potential for prebiotic non-digestible polysaccharides to strengthen the gut barrier and improve immune function. She is also very interested in the connection between nutrition and mental health, and intends to investigate the involvement of dietary factors in the development and treatment of mental disorders.
