Microbiology Research Day

The Microbiology Research Day dissemination event at the School of Chemistry, Food Biosciences and Pharmacy at University of Reading that took place on Thursday 18th of August was a great success. The outcomes of extensive studies into the area of prebiotic and diabetic research were presented in a series of talks and posters.

The PhD candidate Joanna Boberska from the EU funded project MyNewGut presented a poster on a dietary intervention study with diets rich in fibre and polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA). Patricia Nuñez-Ramos, our latest visiting researcher joining the ClausLab group also presented a poster. Patricia has devoted her time here at the University of Reading to diabetic research, finding interesting metabolic changes in liver. Finally, Areej Al-Muraee, also a PhD candidate from the ClausLab group, gave a presentation about the benefits of A2 type of milk which excited the audience. If you weren’t able to come to the event, please do not hesitate and download the posters and talks!

Sadly it is time to say goodbye to Patricia, who will be going back to her University soon. We are very grateful for her interesting research and numerous contributions to the Type 2 Diabetes project and wish her all the best of luck in her future career.
