Current Work

The focus of my work is the interaction between host microbiota and the immune system in chronic and infectious disease. I have projects in the use of probiotics and allergy, isolated milk proteins and atopic dermatitis, respiratory illness in elite athletes and molecular immune profiling in skin cancer.
