Hanns-Ulrich Marschall

Professor, University Hospital Consultant


As one of the leading experts in bile acid metabolism, it feels good to contribute to the fascinating translational and clinical projects pursued by the Bäckhed group. It was always my first goal to become a good doctor. My second goal was to get deeper knowledge in pathophysiology, in particular in metabolism, and to do research with my own hands, at the bench. When bile acids made their career, from small molecules that help to digest fat to endocrine regulators of ever growing pathophysiologically important areas, my curiosity was piqued.

I am Professor of Clinical Hepatology at Gothenburg University since 2010. My research at the Wallenberg Laboratory involves animal and human studies with focus on the interaction between bile acids and the gut microbiota. I am also active in a large number of sponsored and investigator-initiated clinical trials focused on the development of new treatment options for non-alcoholic fatty liver disease/steatohepatitis and cholestatic liver diseases such as primary biliary cholangitis (PBC), primary sclerosing cholangitis (PSC) and in particular, intrahepatic cholestasis of pregnancy (ICP).
