Project Details

Description

The Gut Ecology group at the National Food Institute, Technical University of Denmark investigates effects of bacterial colonization on the maturation of the immune system in early life.
We do this by use of germ-free and monocolonized mouse models.
The project is closely related to other projects in the Gut Ecology research group, where we analyze the intestinal microbiota in infants.
Project financing:
Globalization funds (through FoodDTU)
