Investigating the potential health benefits of the relationship between preterm infants and their microbiome

Dr. Christopher Stewart, University of Newcastle, UK, is investigating the gut microbiota of preterm infants. His studies are focused on understanding the influence of microbial communities on the health of infants. 

Dr. Stewart’s lab employs the latest techniques, including QIAGEN products, to gain insight into the particular microbes in the preterm gut, their function, and the consequences of their presence in the gut environment.
