Our research group is interested in the interaction between commensal or pathogenic microorganisms (viruses, bacteria, parasites) and the cells of the gastrointestinal tract. Particularly, we are interested in the impact of the intestinal microbiota and microbiota induced cytokines on the host cell death machinery in the gut and the liver. We anticipate that our results will elucidate novel disease mechanisms, will help to identify novel biomarkers and therapeutic options for patients suffering from gastrointestinal diseases.
