Microbiota-targeted interventions group

We are localised at the Department of Fundamental Microbiology at the University of Lausanne, Switzerland and also part of the Swiss National Centre of Competence in Research (NCCR) Microbiomes, a Swiss-wide network in microbiome research.

Our work is centered on the role of the microbiota and the gut ecosystem in different forms of malnutrition in order to contribute to the understanding of the syndromes and harness then this knowledge to develop powerful interventions strategies and treatments. We are also more generally interested in the role of the microbiota in the triad linking gut health, infection and nutrition.

To this purpose, we perform clinical/translational projects, especially in low-and middle-income countries (LMIC) and analyze the underlying molecular mechanisms using in vitro and in vivo models.

We hope you enjoy to browse through our site and to learn more about our work and our group. We look forward hearing from you!
