Åsa Keita is a senior associate professor at the Department of Biomedical and Clinical Sciences Linköping University.
Åsa's research involves studying the interactions between the enteric nervous system, immune cells and the barrier function in IBS and IBD, and studying the connection between the gut, its gut flora and the brain.

Prof. Tamara García-Barrera is professor in Analytical Chemistry. Her research interests focus on environmental analysis and biomedicine. She has expertise in sample analysis (metallomics, heteroatom-tagged proteomics, chemical speciation, metabolomics, meta-omics). Her current studies are related with the impact of pollutants on the gut metabolome and gut microbiota as well as their interaction with the gut-brain crosstalk. She is also interested in nutraceuticals and functional food enriched in selenium, the antagonistic action of selenium against pollutants, the mother-offspring transfer of selenoproteins, trace metals, metabolites and microbiota and their influence on the gut (enteromammary gland)-brain axis.
