- BEE March Lab Collaboration: In a collaborative effort, a team from Cornell working with a team from Einstein College of Medicine have published results from a study on building synthetic molecules that have similar structure to microbial metabolites normally found in the gut. Using this approach, termed “metabolite mimicry,” the team was able to demonstrate that making indole-based molecules could significantly reduce intestinal inflammatory markers in both murine and human organoid models.
