Research Interests:

The complex community of microbes residing in our gut, also known as the gut microbiota, is currently seen as an organ of vertebrate animals which has multiple functions such as food processing and pathogen defense. Our lab is dedicated to the study of the commensal and pathogenic bacterial components of the gut microbiota, and their interactions with each other and the host. A secondary goal is to utilize our knowledge to redesign the gut microbiota to promote the wellbeing of humans and farm animals.
