Studies in Dr. Bailey’s laboratory focus on determining the impact that the intestinal microbiota have on the local mucosal immune system, and on immune reactivity at systemic sites, particularly during periods of psychological stress. In past studies, they have shown that exposure to different types of psychological stressors change the community structure of microbiota in the intestines. Their goal now is to demonstrate that these changes have significant effects on the health of the host.
