PhD position summary/title: PhD position in Immunopharmacology

We offer a PhD position for a curiosity driven candidate in this Longfonds/TKI-LSH funded project. The research builds on our previous findings that dietary non-digestible oligosaccharides suppress airway inflammation and enhance corticosteroid efficacy. In this PhD project we will address not only how a combination of specific fermentable fiber and beneficial bacteria can prevent and/or treat allergic asthma, but also if this can inhibit corticosteroid resistance via modifications of the microbiome and epigenome.
