Title: Exploring Ecological and Evolutionary Mechanisms of Colonization Resistance against Salmonella

Speaker’s Research Interests: Due to the enormous complexity of the intestinal microbiota and the lack of appropriate animal models, the mechanisms governing colonization resistance, i.e. interaction between microbiota, host immune system, and pathogens, remain largely unclear. Dr. Stecher’s group uses synthetic microbial communities in vitro and in gnotobiotic mice. With a focus on infections with Gram-negative enteric pathogens including Salmonella enterica and pathogenic Escherichia coli, she aims to understand interactions of commensal bacteria with each other and with enteric pathogens.
