Nanna Louise Riis

Nanna Louise Riis is employed as a postdoc at the Center for Clinical Research and Prevention. She has a master's degree in Human Nutrition from the University of Copenhagen and a PhD in Life Science from the Technical University of Denmark. Nanna has primarily been involved in intervention studies, and her PhD study was based on a randomized controlled trial, where she investigated the effect of reducing the salt content in bread - alone or in combination with dietary advice on the intake of sodium, potassium and Na/K ratio, risk markers for cardiovascular disease, dietary intake as well as salt taste sensitivity and preferences. In the postdoc employment, Nanna works with the 20-year follow-up of the Inter99 cohort.
