Dedicated to Research on Human Milk Oligosaccharides

Human Milk Oligosaccharides (HMOs) are the third most abundant component of human breast milk.

 

The goal of our research is to reveal which maternal factors influence HMO composition
and discover how HMOs impact health and development.

Research

HMOs are unqiue to human breast milk.
Why are they there and what do they do?

 

Together with collaborators from around the world, we use an interdiscpiplinary approach and state-of-the-art technologies

to discover the full potential of HMOs.

Human milk oliogosaccharide composition during lactation is different when mothers use probiotics during late pregnancy.

 

Join us as together we discover the full potential of human milk oligosaccharides

We work at the forefront of HMO research, but we can't do it alone.

You are a world-renowned scientist or a breastfeeding mother (one does not have to exclude the other)? You are a philanthropist passionate about human milk research and improving infant and maternal health and development?

Preparative Platform

HMOs at highest purity for discoveries in
preclinical models

 

We isolate and fractionate HMOs from pooled donor human milk to study in vitro and in vivo efficacy and determine structure-function relationships in preclinical models.

Analytical Platform

Rapid, quantitative HMO composition analysis

with less than a drop of milk

 

We analyze HMO composition in samples from large cohorts to study which maternal genetic and environmental factors influence HMO composition and how HMO composition impacts health and development of infants and mothers.
