This platform sheds light on the complex interactions between food, the gut microbiota, gastrointestinal motility, food breakdown, enzymatic digestion and the transport of digestive contents on nutrient uptake in humans.

The platform develops advanced mathematical and computational models of the human mouth, the gastrointestinal tract (GIT) and the microbiota, in combination with novel experimental techniques and instrumentation required, to study these gastrointestinal interactions and validate each of the models.
