Research Group Metabolic Interactions

We use modern mass-spectrometry methods to understand which molecules are involved in marine host-microbe systems, how different metabolites shape ecological communities, and how the symbiotic partners respond metabolically to environmental changes.

The research in this lab is constantly driven by method developments like high-resolution mass-spectrometry imaging to reveal the spatial metabolome of microbial systems. Our expertise is microbial metabolomics with a special focus on marine systems.

We welcome our new PhD student, Malin Stüwe

Apr 18, 2023

Hey everyone! My name is Malin. I joined the MS group of the symbiosis department for my PhD. My research will be focused on the characterization of the gut microbiome and metabolic interactions occurring between the host and microbes. The project will be conducted in close collaboration with Kie...
