Elena Buelow published under Willem van Schaik's supervision her work about the monitoring of patients in intensive care units to assess the selective digestive decontamination using a metagenomics approach. She accepted to give us highlights of her study which give new insight about the gut resistome. 1) What is your background? I have obtained my Master’s degree in Medical Biology…

In this study, Aviles-Jimenez and co-workers aimed to characterize microbiota of the gastric mucosa as its progress to intestinal type of cancer. To do that, they analysed gastric tissue in patients with non-atrophic gastritis (NAG), intestinal metaplasia (IM) and intestinal-type gastric cancer (GC). After performing genetic analyses on the samples, the researchers quantified a low bacterial diversity in all samples,…

Dr Elena Verdú's lab seeks to understand the complex pathophysiology of gastrointestinal disease, with a focus on microbiota-diet interactions, to identify novel therapeutic targets for these disorders.     1/ What strikes you most in the evolution of research on gut microbiota and why? One interesting aspect relates to the way we have approached the study of the microbiota. We…

Professor Barbara’s main scientific interest is in functional gastrointestinal disorders, including constipation, irritable bowel syndrome and diarrhea. These conditions have been considered for a long time mood disorders. However, there is clear recognition that peripheral and environmental factors as well as the intestinal microbiota participate to their pathophysiology. Subsets of patients develop these condition after a bout of infectious gastroenteritis,…

Catherine Juste studied agronomic engineering, and then became Doctor of Science, specializing in nutrition and physiology. She became passionate about environmental microbiology and is currently developing environmental proteomics of the gut microbes at INRA. She developed an innovative preparative pipeline to explore myriads of bacterial proteins that are expressed in the lumen gut of human hosts, and that may have…
