SandBAR - Strategies and Barriers to avoid the spread of Antibiotic Resistance genes during Wastewater Treatment. SandBAR is the first comprehensive initiative to investigate how wastewater treatment plants affect the transfer and occurrence of antimicrobial resistance to and in human pathogens.
Funded by the Danish council for independent research


Deciphering the causal mechanisms linking the early life microbiome and common chronic inflammatory diseases. In this project we aim to determine the full metagenome from gut and airways to unravel the extrinsic mechanisms that determine the transition from health to chronic disease.
Funden by The Novo Nordisk Foundation


Mapping the role of the microbiome in the origin of asthma and allergy, a prospective clinical study. We will explore the association between alterations in the microbiome, in different body compartments, and the development of asthma and allergy in childhood.
Funded by The Lundbeck Foundation

DARWIN - Dynamics of Antimicrobial Resistance in the Urban Water Cycle in Europe .We will determine specific bacterial hosts that carry AMR genes across UWSs, and identify where key HGT events occur with the ultimate goal of assessing the relative risk of AMR genes returning back to humans due to environmental exposure.
Funded by The Innovation Fund Denmark  & JPI-AMR CoFund 2016
