APPLICATION OF THE SHIME TECHNOLOGY PLATFORM TO ASSESS THE INTERPLAY BETWEEN FUNGI AND BACTERIA IN THE HUMAN GUT

Objectives:

    - Characterization of the mycobiome associated with the SHIME
    - Development of a Candida-infection long-term model
    - Use of the new model to study fungal-bacteria interactions and to assess the effect of specific treatments in preventing-curing Candida infections.

Expected Results:

    - Characterization of the mycobiome associated with the SHIME
    - Development of a Candida-infection long-term model
    - Use of the new model to study fungal-bacteria interactions and to assess the effect of specific treatments in preventing-curing Candida infections.
