Welcome to Experimental Immunology Lab
Our lab focuses on the understanding of fine-tune regulation of homeostatic interaction between microbiota and host immune system. Specifically, how changes in microbiota composition and function are changing immune responses. Special attention is paid to the early postnatal period when both microbiota and immune system are developing, and mutual homoeostatic interactions are being set. Caesarean section delivery and early postnatal antibiotics administration impact microbiota development, thus delaying neonatal immune system maturation. Probiotic administration seems to be a rational way for promoting immune system maturation and/or a correction for dysbiosis.
