Nathalie Scheers

Associate professor,
Biology and Biological Engineering, Food and Nutrition Science

Nathalie Scheers research focus is within the area of molecular nutrition. She and her team investigate intra/extracellular effects of absorbed nutrients e.g. metals, gluten, and the fish protein parvalbumin. This may involve the regulation of transport proteins and enzymes or stress responses that may lead to cancer, cell death, or oxidative damage. As research tools, they are using/developing single/co-culture human cell models and shortly, also intervention and observational studies in humans will be done to translate in vitro results.
