Deciphering the link between skin allergies and the gut microbiota
Over the last few years, scientists have discovered connections between gut microbiota imbalances and various diseases. Now, in a study using mice, biologists from the CNRS, INSERM, and Claude Bernard Lyon 1 University —together with colleagues from the Institut Pasteur de Lille and the NIH (USA)— have revealed a surprising relationship between a viral detection system, the composition of the gut microbiota, and the development of skin allergies. Their findings, published in PNAS (September 24, 2018) suggest potential new therapies.
Olivier Hamant – 2018 HFSP Research grant awardee
Honors and awards
"Human Frontier Science Program" Research Grants provide 3 years of support for international teams involving at least two countries. Preference is given to intercontinental collaborations. All team members are expected to broaden the character of their research compared to their ongoing research programs and interact with teams bringing expertise that is very different from their own so as to create novel approaches to problems in fundamental biology.
Clonal polymorphism and high heterozygosity in the celibate genome of the Amazon molly
The extreme rarity of asexual vertebrates in nature is generally explained by genomic decay due to absence of meiotic recombination, thus leading to extinction of such lineages.
