Associate Professor Stine Brandt Bering is a researcher within Comparative Pediatrics and Nutrition at University of Copenhagen, Denmark. She graduated as a Master of Science in Chemical Engineering (Biotechnology) from The Technical University of Denmark in 2001, and subsequently pursued her PhD studies in Human Nutrition at University of Copenhagen (2001-2006). She continued as a postdoctoral fellow at University of Copenhagen with a supplemental Marie Curie fellowship at The Institute of Food Research in Norwich, UK. Her research focus is on neonatal nutrition in relation to gastrointestinal and immune development in early life. Methods include in vivo animal models, human studies, in vitro cell models and ex vivo tissue studies to clarify specific intestinal responses and cellular mechanisms. Nutrients of interest are bioactive compounds, pre- and probiotics and human milk oligosaccharides. She is the leader of the cell and analytical laboratory in The Section for Comparative Pediatrics and Nutrition, PI of several grants and research administrator of the NEOMUNE research center.

Assistant Professor Duc Ninh Nguyen currently works at the section for Comparative Pediatrics and Nutrition, University of Copenhagen, Denmark. He graduated as a Master of Science in Food Science and Technology in 2011 and obtained a PhD in Food Science and Nutrition in 2014, both at the University of Copenhagen, Denmark. His research focus is on neonatal nutrition, gastroenterology and infectious diseases in early life. The main research tools include animal models of gut inflammation and perinatal infection (mainly preterm pigs) and in vitro intestinal epithelial cell models, together with analytical techniques related to immune assays, proteomics and protein biochemistry. He is also actively involved in design and planning of clinical trials in preterm infants, data management and biological sample analysis. He is the leader of the Immunology sub-group in the section for Comparative Pediatrics and Nutrition, co-PI and work package leader of several grants including STIMMUNE (Bioactive proteins to protect newborn neonates against perinatal inflammation, funded by Arla Food for Health) and NEOCOL (Colostrum for newborns, funded by Innovation Foundation Denmark).
