Description of research and teaching

The general research objectives are:

-         to study the role of intestinal microbiota and probiotics as well as host-microbe interactions in health and disease,

 -         to develop preventive measures based on lactic acid bacteria, including their use as surface displaying antigen platforms for mucosal vaccines against intestinal pathogens and as probiotics for intestinal disorders in humans and animals, and

 -         to develop molecular diagnostics and biomarkers for defining intestinal health.
