Dr. Stephan Rosshart's (University Medical Center Freiburg, Germany) work focuses on mammalian microbiota in health and disease.

Dr. Rosshart conceived the "natural microbiota theory" which he published as corresponding author in the journals Cell (2017) and Science (2019). In July 2019 he took his new position as academic physician scientist, group leader of translational microbiome research and head of the gnotobiotic mouse facility at the University Medical Center Freiburg. His work focuses on mammalian microbiota in health and disease. He utilizes natural microbiota- and pathogen-based mouse models and a bench-to-bedside approach to identify new treatment strategies for human disease
