Dr Ben Nichols


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 Nuria Carpena Garcia


Dr Nuria Carpena Garcia is a driven pharmacist with extensive expertise in microbiology, focused on the research of the emergence and dissemination of resistant bacteria and the development of novel anti-microbial drugs. She is currently working as a postdoctoral researcher on a translational medicine project in the Department of Bacteriology at the University Of Glasgow. The aim of this project is developing novel and highly targeted anti-microbial products targeting the gut microbiome as a strategy to treat inflammatory and infectious diseases. This work is funded by Scottish Enterprise and the ultimate aim is to create a university spin-out based on this technology.

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 graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Computer Science from the University of Ioannina, Greece in 2014, and then moved to Scotland where I obtained my master’s degree in Bioinformatics, Polyomics and Systems Biology from the University of Glasgow in 2015. Currently, I am a PhD student at the University of Glasgow. My project is mainly about the development of a software framework for the integration of faecal metagenomics and metabolomics.

Born in Glasgow, 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.

I am a current PhD student at the University of Glasgow. I have a Bachelor degree in Medicine and Surgery from King Abdulaziz University, KSA, and a Master degree in Infection Biology 2015- University of Glasgow, UK. My project focuses on the role of Adherent-invasive E. coli (AIEC) strains in paediatric Crohn’s disease (CD), and the impact of Exclusive enteral nutrition (EEN) and diet on E. coli population and AIEC behaviour in active paediatric CD and in healthy people. The study design of this project is based on isolating E. coli strains from culturing stool samples of CD patients before and after EEN treatment to study the phenotype and genotype changes in E. coli population by performing metagemonics analysis.

I am a PhD student in Simon Milling’s lab at the Institute of Infection, Immunity and Inflammation at the University of Glasgow. I hold a joint BSc (Hons) in Immunology and Pharmacology and an MSc in Stratified Medicine. My project focuses on identifying the immunological mechanisms causing alopecia areata, a T cell mediated autoimmune disease leading to hair loss. I also work closely with Dr Gerasimidis investigating whether people with alopecia areata have intestinal dysbiosis that may be contributing to their immune dysregulation.

I graduated a Bsc in Cell Biology and Animal Physiology from Paul Sabatier University, Toulouse, France in 2015, before completing an MSc in Digestive Health and Nutrition in 2017. During the MSc, I studied the gut microbiome and immune system in intestinal and metabolic diseases including Inflammatory Bowel Diseases (IBD) and Diabetes. In 2017, I started my PhD at the University of Glasgow. My project focuses on studying the pathophysiology of non-IgE-mediated Cow's Milk Protein Allergy by profiling the gut microbiome and immune system in infants to use as a non-invasive diagnostic method.

Konstantinos Gkikas is a Dietician and Nutritionist originally from Greece and is currently a PhD student at the University of Glasgow. After completing his undergraduate studies in Nutrition and Dietetics in Harokopio University in Greece, he completed his postgraduate studies in MSc Human Nutrition with Specialisation in Clinical Nutrition at the University of Glasgow. His research interests are focused on exploring the association between dietary triggers, inflammation and the gut microbiome in children with Crohn’s disease, in the early food reintroduction phase, after treatment with Exclusive Enteral Nutrition. Konstantinos aspires to become an academic one day and his goal is to improve the overall health and quality of life of Crohn’s disease patients through diet.

I completed my undergraduate degree in microbiology from the University of Glasgow in 2017 and I am currently a PhD student at the University of Glasgow working with Professor Roe and Dr Gerasimidis. I am studying the role of D-amino acids in bacterial pathogenesis and will be looking at the dietary consequences these amino acids play on the microbiome.

I completed my undergraduate degree in Physiology at the university of Aberdeen in 2017, where I became interested in the role of nutrition in the prevention of chronic disease. Following this, I came to the University of Glasgow to study a postgraduate degree in MSc Human Nutrition, specialising in Public Health Nutrition. I decided to focus my career in developing interventions and using research to influence policy makers to improve health at population level. In 2018, I started my PhD with Dr Konstantinos Gerasimidis, Dr George Raptis and Dr Evi Germeni. The project involves developing a protocol for Scottish schools to help staff safely manage pupils with severe allergies. The comprehensive protocol will cover prevention, recognition and treatment of emergencies.

Originally from Hamburg (Germany) I moved to Scotland to start an Undergraduate degree in Biochemistry at the University of Dundee. This BSc sparked my interest in Immunology, so I proceeded to do a MSc in Immunology and Inflammatory Disease with the University of Glasgow. After finishing my master’s course, I decided to stay at the University of Glasgow and joined the Milling Group for a PhD to investigate different disease mechanisms in Inflammatory Bowel Disease.
