Lectures and seminars CTMR Bug Corner: Omry Koren from Bar-Ilan University (Israel)
The Koren lab studies the human microbiome in health and disease. Their main interest lies in the interplay between our microbiome and our endocrine system.
Omry Koren’s research focuses on two major questions: how do the bacteria affect the host, and how does the host affect the bacteria?Among our main interests are the interactions between the microbiome and the host endocrine system. A good example of this is in pregnancy, during which significant changes in microbiota composition, host hormonal levels, and immune responsiveness all converge to attain healthy fetal development. Another interest in our lab includes the affects of the microbiome on host social behavior.
