Food chain and mi­cro­bi­ome

Food chain and mi­cro­bi­ome

From soil to gut, microbes are vital throughout the food chain. We combine a strong tradition in microbiology and food safety research spanning the Viikki environmental and Meilahti medical campuses in collaboration with the Food Safety Authority Evira. By studying microbes, their communities and interactions, as well as genetics, epidemiology, ecology, and physiology, we tackle risks and maintain the health of humans, animals, and the environment.
