MIMS group leader Björn O. Schröder received a research grant from Dr P Håkanssons Stiftelse (Dr Per Håkansson Foundation) for a project in which he and his team will investigate how specific diets affect the intestinal microbiota. For the project, Björn will collaborate with Anna Sjödin and Jonas Burén from the Department of Food, Nutrition and Culinary Science, Umeå University, to analyze how consumption of a popular low carbohydrate diet affects the gut microbiota in healthy people and what consequences this might have for their interaction with the body. The grant will be awarded during a ceremony on the Näringslivdag in Eslöv in the south of Sweden.

Since 1920, the Dr Per Håkansson Foundation has awarded scholarships and grants for scientific research in the subject areas of medical chemistry, physiology and food chemistry. In 2021, they awarded seven researchers with the total grant amount of 3 200 000 kr. See the original article here:
