Prof Emma Wetter Slack
Prof Emma Wetter Slack is a professor at the Department of Health Sciences and Technology (D-HEST) at ETH Zurich. The Wetter Slack group’s research focuses on understanding and manipulating the interactions between microbes and host on microbial surfaces, particularly in the intestine. Their work involves developing novel mucosal vaccines for application in human and veterinary medicine, as well as establishing unique tools for the functional analysis of the microbiota in animal models. In combination, this will allow the group to rationally and robustly manipulate host-microbiota and host-pathogen interactions for the promotion of health.
