Bärbel Stecher (Principal Investigator)

I am a microbiologist fascinated by the enormous complexity and functional flexibility of the mammalian microbiota (twitter:@baerboletta). My academic training started at LMU Munich where I studied microbiology, immunology and genetics (CV). For my PhD I moved to the ETH Zürich, Switzerland where I focused on Salmonella pathogenesis. My academic career included positions at the ETH Zürich and the McMaster University, Canada. Since 2010, I´m leading an independent lab at the Max von Pettenkofer-Institute for Hygiene and Medical Microbiology, LMU Munich and I hold an Associate Professorship (tenured W2) since 2016. The central focus of my lab is on the gastrointestinal microbiome with a specific interest in molecular microbiology, microbial ecology and microbe-host interactions in infectious diseases.
