Om Julia König

Julia König joined the NGBI research centre as a postdoctoral researcher in December 2012. She received a Master’s degree in nutrition science in 2008 from the University of Hohenheim in Germany and graduated from the international PhD program ‘Molecular Medicine’ from the Medical University of Graz, Austria in 2011. The topic of her PhD thesis was ‘Endothelial differentiation potential of amnion-derived mesenchymal stromal cells’, in which she investigated a potential therapeutic use of human placenta-derived cells in vascular biology. After her PhD, she worked as a postdoctoral researcher for the Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology at the Medical University of Graz for the project ‘Detection of biomarkers for preterm birth in saliva and cervico-vaginal fluid of pregnant women using proteomics’.

As part of the NGBI group, she is now combining her background in nutrition science with her interest in translational clinical research. With her research she is investigating the interactions between nutrition, gut microbiota, the gut and the brain, and tries to find new treatments for gastrointestinal disorders such as irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).

One of Julia’s main projects is to investigate the potential of faecal microbiota transfer (FMT) in disorders/diseases such as IBS and microscopic colitis. FMT aims at re-establishing a healthy gut microbiota by infusing suspended stool from a healthy donor into the intestine of the patients. In addition, she is involved in human studies investigating the effects and modes of action of probiotics, the human gut barrier function as well as the gut-brain axis (fMRI studies).
