I am a postdoctoral research assistant in the department of Human Nutrition at the University of Glasgow. My role involves the processing and analysis of gut microbiome DNA data for a number of different projects within the department. My PhD in Bioinformatics was also obtained at the University of Glasgow and prior to that I studied Mathematics and Statistics at Newcastle University where I was awarded an integrated bachelor's and master's degree (MMathStat).

Dr Teresita De Jes Bello Gonzales


Dr Teresita de Jesus Bello Gonzalez works as a Postdoctoral Research Assistant in the department of Microbiology at the Institute of Infection, Immunity and Inflammation. She has graduated in Microbiology and completed his postgraduate studies in Medical Science. During her doctoral research at Wageningen University & Research in the Netherlands, she explored the effect of antibiotic prophylaxis therapy on the gut microbiota in ICUs patients. Currently, she is working in a Scottish Enterprise project targeting the gut microbiota as a therapeutic for Inflammatory Bowel Diseases and Immune Diseases in collaboration with Dr. Gerasimidis.

I am a PhD student at the University of Glasgow. My project focuses on the dietary manipulation of the gut microbiome and the development of a novel, solid food-based, dietary treatment for Crohn's disease. I have graduated a Bsc in Dietetics and Human Nutrition from Harokopio University of Athens and completed my postgraduate studies with an Msc in Human Nutrition with specialisation in Clinical Nutrition from University of Glasgow. I am a registered dietitian in Greece.

Glasgow born and bred, I completed my undergraduate degree from the University of Glasgow in immunology in 2014, followed by an MRes in biomedical sciences the following year. I was then fortunate to begin my PhD in Dr Gerasimidis group. My PhD project, titled the BIG (bacteria, inflammation, and gastroenterology) study focuses on the microbiome of children newly diagnosed with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). Crohn’s disease is the leading form of IBD in children, the first line treatment of which is a dietary therapy called exclusive enteral nutrition (EEN). I study microbiome changes throughout this therapy, as well as having a specific interest in the post EEN diet in these children.

I have a BSc in Nutrition from Leeds Metropolitan University and a BSc (Hons) in Dietetics from the University of Hertfordshire. In addition to that I obtained my MSc in Human Nutrition with a specialization in Clinical Nutrition from the University of Glasgow. I work as a research technician in the department of Human Nutrition at the University of Glasgow. My role is such that I work on numerous projects in areas interested in the role of the gastrointestinal micro- and myco-biome in various chronic diseases including Crohn's disease, ulcerative colitis and alopecia.
