Researcher

Nele Brusselaers

  • Research interest:I am a clinical epidemiologist with as main research interests the long-term effects of commonly prescribed drugs such as antibiotics and gastric-acid suppressors, potentially through interactions with the microbiome - with a focus on the gastro-intestinal and vaginal microbiome. My main clinical areas of expertise are cancer (in particular of the gastro-intestinal tract), women's health (incl. pregnancy) and infectious diseases. I am trained as a medical doctor, epidemiologist and infection control/hospital hygiene specialist but work as a full-time academic researcher.
