About Richard Forsgård

Richard Forsgård joined the Nutrition-Gut-Brain Interactions (NGBI) Research Centre in March 2019 as one of the post-doctoral researchers recruited within Örebro University's Food and Health initiative. Richard obtained his PhD in the field of Pharmacology from the University of Helsinki in 2018. In his PhD thesis titled Intestinal permeability as a marker of gastrointestinal health, he investigated changes in intestinal barrier function following different stressors. In 2021, he started as a Marie Curie Fellow with a research project focusing how dietary fibres modulate measures of intestinal barrier function and the interactions between intestinal permeability, microbiota, and inflammation.
