Dr Gudrun Schober

Postdoctoral Fellow

Adelaide Medical School

Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences


Dr. Gudrun Schober is a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Intestinal Nutrient Sensing Group based at the South Australian Health & Medical Research Institute (SAHMRI) where she investigates the form and function of the intestinal sweet taste system. This system senses intestinal glucose, and can regulate the control of gut hormones and glucose absorption.
Gudrun studied Nutritional sciences at the University of Vienna in Austria and completed her PhD in Nutritional Physiology and Behaviour at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH) Zurich in Switzerland, 2013. During this period she investigated how Diacylglycerol acyltransferase-1 inhibition enhances intestinal fatty acid oxidation and thereby reducing energy intake in rats. In June 2014, Gudrun moved to Adelaide to perform clinical research at the Discipline of Medicine and NHMRC Centre of Research Excellence in Translating Nutritional Science to Good Health where she focussed on the effects of dietary amino acids on energy intake and glycaemia. In 2016, Gudrun then joined A/Prof Richard L Young’s group at SAHMRI.
