Primary fields of research
We develop and utilize specialized animal models to address important issues in the period around birth. We have a particular focus on premature birth, early nutrition and gut colonization in relation with growth and development as well as the prevention of life-threatening infections.
In the project PrePhage, running from 2021-2024, we investigate in mechanistic details and using premature piglets how transplantation of bacteriophages (bacteria-infecting viruses) derived from donor feces is capable of preventing the life-threatening bowel disease necrotizing enterocolitis.
