GGIG mission

The ‘Ghent Gut Inflammation Group’ represents a consortium of research labs at Ghent University studying diverse aspects of gastrointestinal biology during health and disease. Understanding how the complex interactions between the intestinal microbiota and host immune as well as stromal cells affect both intestinal and extra-intestinal health (e.g. in the brain and the joints) demands a multi-disciplinary approach. For taking on this challenge, the GGIG has the guts to connect expertise from 4 different UGent Faculties!

Elk van onze UGent onderzoeksgroepen beschikt over een specifieke expertise gelinkt aan maagdarmonderzoek.
