Rikard Landberg is professor of Food and Health. His group is studying the impact of food and food components may have on health and disease risk in observational and intervention studies as well as in various model systems. The role of plant based fiber-rich food in appetite, hormonal regulation and cardiometabolic risk factors have a major focus. The group also develops and evaluates biomarkers of dietary exposure used in epidemiological research. Nutritional metabolomics ( MS- and NMR- techniques) has become increasingly important in research to find new biomarkers for both exposures disease risk. The group collaborates extensively with international expertise in statistics, epidemiology and medicine.
