Impact Of Certain Gut Bacteria On The Gut Health

The study exploring the impact of gut bacteria on gut health; certain gastrointestinal bacteria cause disease in some people but not others. By this underlying the mechanisms responsible for this impact. Findings from this research should help to improve; the targeting of measures aimed at preventing gastrointestinal diseases. The human gastrointestinal tract is colonizing by large numbers of bacteria, most of which are harmless; and have a beneficial effect on normal body functions.

But certain bacteria, can become dangerous and cause disease but not in everybody. This now explore these mechanisms in greater detail, looking at both the stomach and the large intestine. But by this study will be shining a light on interactions between stem cells and some specific bacteria which colonize the gastrointestinal tract and have the potential to cause disease.

or instance, we will be studying bacteria that reside in the large bowel, and which have been linked to both chronic inflammatory bowel disease and malignant cancers. The researchers will conduct studies using a range of different methods, including the analysis of patient samples, the use of complex cell and stem cell cultures, and experimental animal models.

Impact of gut bacteria

The human gastrointestinal tract is colonized by large numbers of bacteria, most of which are harmless and have a beneficial effect on normal body functions. Certain bacteria, however, can become dangerous and cause disease but not in everybody. The visualization of bacteria within the gastrointestinal tract will also play a central role. For this task, the researchers will be using modern; high-resolution microscopes.

The visualization of bacteria within the gastrointestinal tract will also play a central role. For this task, the researchers will be using modern, high resolution microscopes. We hope that our research will reveal the conditions under which certain resident gut microbes are able to cause damage. This will allow us to develop strategies aimed at preventing symptoms and restoring gut health.

Chronic bowel disease

The gastroenterologist will also continue to develop clinical services for chronic stomach and bowel diseases, in order to ensure research optimally dovetails with patient care. The DFG’s Emmy Noether program supports outstanding early career researchers, enabling them to qualify for appointment as a university professor by leading an independent junior research group.
