Interaction of microbiota and immune system
In recent years, an increasing number of diseases was identified that can be prevented by modifications of the gut microbiota. This applies in particular to autoimmune diseases. The immune system contributes to the microbiota by generation of specific IgA antibodies. In cooperation with Sidonia Fagarason (Riken, Japan) and Oliver Pabst (Aachen, Germany) we are investigating the interaction of microbiota and the immune system with mathematical models.
