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 in Food Science and Nutrition at the University of Sao Paulo (USP), Brazil. Her main focus was to evaluate structural-dependent effects of dietary fibres on colon cancer and other immune interactions. Now, she is working evaluating with the interplay between dietary proteins and fibres on butyrate production and uptake and human gut health.
