“Hi there! I’m Catriona, your hospital representative for the 2020-21 academic year! I’ll be acting as a liaison between the hospital based nutritional science students and the rest of the department, making sure to keep everyone up to date with the departmental events!
I’m a third year PhD student in the Bandsma lab. My project is aiming to improve the understanding of the mechanisms underlying malnutrition enteropathy, specifically the role of the tryptophan-nicotinamide pathway in the intestinal barrier dysfunction that is seen. In my spare time I like to get outside whenever possible and spend time on and in the water!
Don’t hesitate to reach out!”
