Training interdisciplinary glycoscientists to get a molecular-level grip on glycocodes at the human mucosa–microbiota interface

Project description

The role of sugars in intestinal health

The human microbiome plays a key role in health by protecting the host from invading pathogens, producing key nutrients and maintaining intestinal immunity. At the same time, microbiome imbalances can contribute to disease. The EU-funded SWEET CROSSTALK project is interested to delineate the complex interactions between microbiota and host at the molecular level. Particular emphasis will be given to milk sugars, which resemble the sugars found at the gut mucus layer and contribute to infant gut microbiota composition. The work will lead to the development of sugar-based therapeutics with a potential to improve human health.
