Project description

The application concerns the replacement of an anaerobic cabinet that is used to culture anaerobic bacteria for studying bacterial metabolism and host-microbiota interactions. This equipment is essential to perform research that is focusing on the understanding of how anaerobic bacteria and their metabolites are involved in maintaining gastrointestinal homeostasis and in prevention of infectious and inflammatory gastrointestinal disease.
