Dr_Jacobo

Yesterday, Jacobo successfully defended his thesis titled “Insights into the human gut microbiome and its link with obesity and cardiometabolic diseases”. During the last 4.5 years in the Ley Lab he has developed new methods and computational approaches to study...

Lara_Berg

Congratulations to Lara Berg for successfully completing her Masters degree in the Ley Lab! For her thesis, Lara charaterised strain-level metabolic and syntrophic variations in the dominant human gut methanogen, Methanobrevibacter smithii. Using M. smithii samples obtained from stool samples...

Jorzik_Paul

Congratulations are in order for Paul OG Jorzik, who has successfully completed his Master’s degree. Paul completed his thesis in the Ley Lab where he worked on the development of novel genetic systems for non-model human gut-associated bacteria. Congratulations Paul!

New article on microbiome engineering published in Cell (https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/abs/pii/S0092867421014975?via%3Dihub) in which our project leader and microbiome engineering expert James Marsh and Ruth E. Ley address the recent Cell issue by Jin et al. (https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/abs/pii/S0092867421015415) and discuss innovative tools for editing...

Kelsey_uHEAT

Congratulations to postdoctoral researcher Kelsey Huus who was awarded an EMBO fellowship to run the µHEAT study (‘Microbial-Human Ecology and Temperature’), which aims to understand interactions between the gut microbiome and the human immune system in the context of vaccination....
