Dr. Marcel de Zoete, Ph.D.

Dr. Marcel de Zoete, Ph.D., is Associate Professor of Microbiome Research at the Department of Medical Microbiology at the University Medical Center Utrecht in The Netherlands. During his postdoctoral studies in the lab of Professor Dr. Richard Flavell at the Department of Immunobiology at Yale University School of Medicine, Dr. De Zoete identified a subset of bacterial members of the intestinal microbiota that contribute to inflammatory bowel disease. His current research continues to focus on the molecular mechanisms through which the microbiota and its metabolites, by targeting epithelial, stromal and immune cells, influence intestinal health and disease. Dr. De Zoete has authored multiple high-impact publications, several of which appeared in Nature, Science, Cell and PNAS.
