Raphael Fagundes Rosa, Brazil GSMS

Raphael Fagundes Rosa started his PhD at the Department of Hepatology and Gastroenterology at the University Medical Centre Groningen (UMCG) in September 2017, after graduating with honor in the TopMaster’s Program Medical Pharmaceutical Drug Innovation also at the University of Groningen. Raphael is interested in studying the inter-relationship between living bacteria found in the human gut and the molecular processes that lead to disease in patients with Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD), a still incurable disease where patients require life-long therapy. Raphael has been keen on the internationalization prospects of research since the start of his scientific training, which has driven him to seek collaborations and international experiences during his previous and current degrees.
