Keywords Gene transfer between gut microorganisms | Interactions between pathogens and gut microbes | Impact of gut microbiota on immune function | Efficacy and safety of pro/prebiotics | Molecular profiling of intestinal microbiota | Influence of dietary components on host gut flora

I am heading the The National Food Institute research group on Intestinal Microbial Ecology.

The focus of our research is on effects of diet on composition, activity and genetic exchange in the gut microbiota, as well as on effects of the gut environment on resistance to pathogenic infections. Additionally, we adress the impact of gut microbes on maturation and maintenance of the host immune system. We look at effects of whole food items as well as of prebiotic carbohydrates and probiotic bacteria.
