Welcome Boushra!

Date: 30th Aug 2022

Dr. Boushra Dalile from KU Leuven will join our lab for two smaller research stays in the next few months! She is a Postdoctoral Researcher at the Translational Research Center for Gastrointestinal Disorders (TARGID) at KU Leuven, Belgium. She was trained in Psychology and Cognitive Neuroscience (2012-2017) and holds a PhD in Biomedical Sciences from KU Leuven (2021), where she investigated the role of short-chain fatty acids in the human microbiota-gut-brain axis, particularly pertaining to psychophysiological stress- and fear-related responses under the supervision of Prof. Kristin Verbeke. He research interests include the gut microbiota, dietary fiber, short-chain fatty acids as well as brain health in general, and psychological stress, anxiety, and cognition in particular. Currently, she is working on unravelling the mechanisms that mediate the effect of short-chain fatty acids on the stress response in human, and the implications of that on various brain functions. Her work was published in various peer-reviewed academic journals including Nature Reviews Gastroenterology & Hepatology, Behavioral and Brain Sciences, Neuropsychopharmacology, and Psychoneuroendocrinology.
