About Tatiana Marques

Dr Tatiana Milena Marques (1980) has a B.Sc. in Pharmacy from the Universidade Federal de Minas Gerais, Brazil and a Master degree in Bio-Systems Sustainability from Hokkaido University, Japan. In 2014 she obtained a PhD in Microbiology at APC Microbiome Institute, University College Cork, Ireland. Her Ph.D. research focused on the analysis of microbiota-host interactions and production of bioactive compounds by human intestinal microbes. Since November 2015 Dr Marques has been working in Sweden as a Researcher at the Nutrition-Gut-Brain Interactions Research Centre (NGBI), Örebro University. Her main area of interest is the interactions of the human gut microbiota with other organs and body systems, and the determining mechanisms by which diet may modulate the microbiota and influence the host in health and disease. Together with her colleagues Dr Marques has established national and international collaborations, including strong partnership with industry. She is the main applicant of a successful grant application to The European Society for Clinical Nutrition and Metabolism (ESPEN) and a co-applicant in several successful grant applications, including applications to Vetenskapsrådet and Formas. Dr Marques is currently one of the directors of studies of the Food Science Sweden Graduate School LiFT (Future Technologies for Food Production).
