New host-microbe interaction lab up and running

CMET is proud to announce new and exciting expertise within the group of Prof. Tom Van de Wiele. A new lab was built to facilitate the cultivation of in vitro models of host tissue, and combine them with our existing models of the human microbiome. An enthusiastic group of 3 postdocs, 3 PhDs, 4 students and 1 lab technician is now using this infrastructure to study host-microbe interactions in at the epithelial interface of the gut, nasopharynx and mouth mucosa.
