Foods to stimulate the metabolism of the human commensal bacteria, Faecalibacterium prausnitzii
My project aims to elucidate the ecology and behaviour of Faecalibacterium prausnitzii in vitro and in co-culture with epithelial cells to better formulate foods that will improve its beneficial effect on the human gut.
I am from a small town in northern Italy, with a bachelor's degree in biotechnology from university of Trento, Italy, and a master's degree in microbiology from Aberdeen University, Scotland.
