Our mission is to support basic and translational research unravelling host-microbe interactions and their impact on plant, animal and human health

Infectious disease has re-emerged as a substantial threat to human existence. In parallel, indigenous microbial communities, collectively termed the microbiome, are incresingly appreciated to play critical roles in shaping human health and driving disease. Understanding host-microbe and host-microbiome interactions will enable to harness new treatments to be translated to the clinic for human health.
