Our research focuses on understanding the functional consequences of fungal microbiota (mycobiota) composition and metabolism to the host's immunity and to bacterial populations in the gut. We study the role of gut fungi in mucosal immunity during health and conditions in which fungi can contribute to pathologies, such as Inflammatory Bowel Disease, allergy and immunosuppression.
