Outline

The mammalian alimentary tract harbors over thousand of species of commensal microorganisms that homeostatically interact with the host. In this study, we focus on immunological attributes of the microbiota and identify responsible bacterial species and factors for shaping the immune system. We aim to develop a way to manipulate the microbiota for many mucosal immune conditions, such as inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD) and allergy.
