Proof of concept of the impact of gut microbiota in the clinical outcome of ICB in mouse models of cancer
We aim to study the adjuvant effects of Enterococcus hirae in antitumoral response. In particular, we want to identify how E. hirae translocates the intestinal barrier and the cells that mediate the antitumor effect.
The role of peptidoglycan in bacterial cell physiology: from bacterial shape to host-microbe interactions Peptidoglycan (PGN) is a major essential and unique component of the cell wall of both of Gram-negative and Gram-positive bacteria. […]
When Gut Bacteria Changes Brain Functions
We are interested in deciphering the relationships that link gut microbiota with the immune system and the brain. So far, the mechanisms underlying these interplay, and most importantly their consequences, remain largely unknown. Therefore […]
Biology and Genetics of Bacterial Cell Wall
Our research unit aims at studying peptidoglycan (PGN) metabolism to better understand how bacteria assemble a mature and essential PGN that confers rigidity and shape to the cell despite a highly dynamic process […]
