R&D Specialist at Nestlé Research
Dr. Marcus Böhme is as R&D Specialist working at the Nestlé Research Centre in Lausanne, Switzerland focusing on the Gut-Brain Axis. Prior to joining Nestlé, he completed his undergraduate training in Nutritional Science at the Friedrich-Schiller-University of Jena, Germany, where he also received his PhD in neuroscience. Subsequently, Dr. Böhme undertook a 4-year postdoctoral fellowship in the lab of Prof. John Cryan at the University College Cork, Ireland, where he studied the relationship between diet, stress and cognition with a focus on the gut microbiota as a key mediator. His research focusses on how diet shapes brain function and behavior with the gut microbiota acting as a novel mediator between diet and maintenance of brain health across lifespan.
