Multi-kingdom interactions in Clostridioides difficile colonization and infection
Dr. Jannie G.E. Henderickx is a postdoctoral researcher and study coordinator at the Centre for Microbiome Analyses and Therapeutics (CMAT) at Leiden University Medical Centre. Jannie performed her PhD research at the Microbiology department of Wageningen University & Research, investigating the early life microbiome of preterm infants. Within her current research, Jannie aims to uncover the human microbiome’s clinical potential. Bioinformatic approaches allow her to study the ecology and functions of bacteria and fungi constituting the human microbiome in a wide spectrum of disease states.
