Ragna Husby Tingstad


I am currently doing my PhD at The Oslo and Akershus University College of Applied Sciences (2013-present) researching the effect of bacterial components on energy metabolism in human skeletal muscle cells. This study connects two popular research fields; the microbiota and type 2 diabetes.
Of previous studies, I have a BSc in Biological Sciences from Glasgow Caledonian University, Glasgow, Scotland (2006-2009) with an Honours (Hons) year in Microbiology (2009-2010). This was followed by a MSc in Molecular Medicine from the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU), Trondheim, Norway (2010-2012).
Prior to starting my PhD studies, I was employed as a consultant at student affairs department the medical faculty at NTNU (2012-2013)
