About Samira Prado

Samira Prado joined Nutrition-Gut-Brain Interactions Research Centre (NGBI) group in February 2020 as a Postdoctoral researcher within the Food and Health Programme. Samira did her PhD at the University of Sao Paulo (USP) and her main focus was to evaluate the structural-dependent effects of dietary fibres on colon cancer, microbiota functioning and other immune interactions. Now, she is working on conducting human interventions to evaluate dietary proteins' effects on gut-related metabolites and dietary biomarkers. Additionally, through in vitro models such as cell culture and colonic fermentation, she is interested in evaluating the predictability of in vitro assays by validating them in vivo. Samira is involved in teaching activities and is the Faculty of Medicine and Health representative of Örebro Junior Faculty.
