In de uitnodiging van juli dit jaar hebben we aangekondigd dat we er een tweede EM Bessenpluk zou komen in de nazomer, zoals u dat van ons gewend bent. Helaas hebben we dit vanwege de aanhoudende droogte niet kunnen doen.

Gut microbes as future therapeutics in treating inflammatory and infectious diseases: Lessons from recent findings [review, 2018]
