Bridgette Wilson completed her MSc in Molecular Biology and Functional Genomics at Ag Research, New Zealand, in conjunction with Waikato University, New Zealand, followed by postgraduate training to become a registered dietitian in the UK. She has now completed a PhD at King’s College London investigating the effects of prebiotics in gastrointestinal health.

She completed a large randomised control trial of patients with IBS supplementing the low FODMAP diet with prebiotics and a second study investigating how prebiotic supplementation may alter gene markers of inflammation and immunity in patients with ulcerative colitis. In addition, Bridgette has published a systematic review and meta-analysis of prebiotics in IBS and functional bowel disorders. Bridgette continues to conduct research into fibre interventions in functional gut disorders. In addition Bridgette has worked on developing a nutrition screening tool for inflammatory bowel disease and is currently developing national guidelines for the dietary management of inflammatory bowel disease.
