Glycobiology of host-microbe interactions in the gut

My current project is focusing in microbe glycan interaction with proteins expressed in innate immune cells. I will sort and identify microbiota positive to selected proteins, and furthermore I will investigate the immune response, for further understanding immunity and how is regulated by microbiota in a healthy and disease state.

Before that, as a research assistant, I was working with commensal yeast and the effect of the autophagy in the cell activation. My interest in gut glyco-immunology started from my master’s internship at the Quadram Institute Bioscience, where I studied the transportation of a polysaccharide through intestinal epithelial cells.
