Hello, my name is Antonia and I’m the new intern in the ISB group. My research project is about the dietary effects on acute and chronic inflammation in the human liver, and also how exercise and muscle growth is affected by switching diets. The state of the liver is strongly associated with both physical activity and your dietary habits, therefore it’s quite relevant to look at these two factors and how they could affect the liver. My focus will be on the switching from an omnivore to a strict plant-based diet. Since I’m vegan myself, I thought it would be interesting to do a project that is connected to my lifestyle. I’m planning on working on this project throughout the whole year and I’m excited to see how it goes!
