|Description||According to the Developmental Origins of Health and Disease (DOHaD) hypothesis, environmental influences during pregnancy that occur at critical developmental time points can have a lasting effect on disease susceptibility later in life. Epidemiological studies demonstrate that prenatal exposure to traditional farming environments has a protective effect against asthma in the offspring, whereas prenatal exposure to antibiotics increases offspring asthma risk. Though there is much evidence supporting the DOHaD hypothesis, the mechanisms involved during pregnancy and fetal development that alter offspring asthma susceptibility are not understood.
We are a lab that uses mouse models to study how 1) prenatal exposure to farming bacteria during pregnancy and 2) prenatal exposure to antibiotics influences offspring asthma susceptibility.
We have several exciting projects in our lab are looking for a motivated researcher with an interest in immunology, pregnancy and development to do a PhD with us. Regarding funding, we would apply for a Konrad-Adenauer Stipendium. We would act as your host lab and after discussion of your interests, provide a full research plan for the scholarship application.
