Who we are
Our research topic is about the human microbiome (gut, skin, nose, organs), as well as it’s interplay with the environmental microbiome (plants, indoor environment). Our work focuses on the detection of Bacteria and Archaea and their cultivation.
The different projects cover pregnancy and premature health, the olfactory sense, skin and gastrointestinal tract and the interaction between microbiome and immune system.
Moreover, we collaborate with several research groups.
Why/How are we going Green
We are conscious of the amount of plastic and consumable energy that is needed to perform our experiments. Therefore we want to reduce our ecological footprint by reducing and recycling our plastic waste, choosing more sustainable products wherever possible and lowering the energy consumption of the lab.
