Prebiotic compounds are believed to improve human health by selectively stimulating the growth and activity of health-promoting species belonging to the genera Bifidobacteria and Lactobacilli. These species have a beneficial effect on the colon environment and can be used as a marker for the stability in the human colon microbiota.

The main aim of my PhD project is to validate new synthesized carbohydrate in preparation for defining them as prebiotics and hence examining if they have a stimulating effect on the health-promoting species in the colon.Furthermore, I am studying the effect of the potential prebiotics on the colon environment in patients with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), and examining, if these components can play a roll in the treatment of IBD.
