The essential is invisible to the eyes, and that essential part is the microbiota.
Since I started the research area, I have been divided between the intestinal microbiota and the bad pathogen (C. difficile), and thanks to the research that I have been able to develop with my colleagues and PI Dr. Paredes-Sabja at the University Andres Bello during my Master’s degrees in Biotechnology and Life Sciences, I’ve seen the importance of both, on the one hand a strong intestinal microbiota will never allow C. difficile to lodge and cause so much damage to the well-being of the host.
Because it doesn’t matter the location of the microbiota that lives in our body or even the microorganism present in living beings like corals of the sea, these wonderful bacteria promotes health and take us care from disease!
