Focused on translational research in small animal gastroenterology under the One Health philosophy. One main focus of the lab is the gut microbiome and metabolome and its various effects on other organ systems including the gut-brain-axis and the peripheral immune system. Under this umbrella we also investigate novel treatment strategies including fecal microbiota transplantations. A second important research focus revolves around novel diagnostic and treatment options for feline chronic enteropathies including inflammatory bowel disease and feline low-grade intestinal T-cell lymphoma. We are closely collaborating with veterinary and human pathologists to identify novel biomarkers as diagnostic and therapeutic targets utilizing traditional (H&E, immunohistochemistry) and novel techniques.
