Influence of environmental contaminants on the immune system

Effects of environmental contaminants on the immune system – analysis of the cellular transcriptome, proteome and metabolome in health and disease.

Microbiom Biology

The degradation efficiency of bacteria in different environmental compartments depends on the complex interactions in the microbial communities. In addition, processes mediated by the endogenous microbiome play an important role in metabolic diseases.

Influence of environment and lifestyle on the metabolome

The analysis of the metabolome reflects a snap-shot picture of the current state of metabolism. Changes in the metabolism, which can be responsible for the development of diseases, are recorded using metabolomics. Our aim is to unravel the response of the metabolome to external factors.

Methods development

Development of new proteomic and metabolomic technics
