On Wednesday, 06.12.2023 at 15:30, Eric Pamer will be the speaker of our ‘GutLiver and Friends‘ seminar.

Eric Pamer is Professor and Director of the Duchossois Family Institute at the University of Chigago.

The Main Research area of the Pamer Lab:

The Eric Pamer laboratory studies interactions between pathogenic and beneficial bacteria and their mammalian hosts. Our laboratory’s research focuses on a wide range of commensal bacteria that have been characterized at the genomic, proteomic and metabolomic level and we are using gnotobiotic mice to test assembled commensal consortia for their ability to enhance resistance against pathogenic bacteria.  Using these platforms, we have identified multiple novel mechanisms of antimicrobial resistance that can be exploited to reduce the risk of infection by highly antibiotic-resistant pathogens.
