Dr Sarita Dam

Sarita finished her BSc on Medical biology and MSc on Cognitive Neuroscience at the Radboud University Nijmegen (NL). She performed research with rodents on several projects that focused on the investigation of early dietary factors on the brain and cognitive development in mice and she measured behavioral flexibility in touchscreen-based rodent tasks relevant to human conditions (e.g. schizophrenia, obsessive-compulsive disorder, and depression). As a PhD candidate at the Radboud University Medical Centre Nijmegen (NL), she specialized in translational neuroscience and worked on the effect of dietary interventions, their effect on the structure of the gut microbiome and how this relates to behavioral changes in Neurodevelopmental disorders.
