Development of improved fluorescence in situ hybridization techniques, that allow the direct observation (and possibly treatment) of microorganisms within the human body.
Suggestions for potential research cooperations:
Humans are now recognized as being superorganisms whose metabolism represents an amalgamation of microbial and human attributes. Hence, robust methods that allow to locate and control in vivo the microbial populations that are part of the human body will certainly bring great benefits for human health. The method I'm developing provides an insight of microbial localization within the human body.
