    Collapse Overview
    Human Milk Oligosaccharides (HMO) are the third most abundant component of human breast milk. We are just now beginning to understand how these complex sugars benefit the breast-fed infant (Bode 2006, Bode 2009, Bode 2012).

    The goal of our research is to answer two very fundamental questions regarding HMO:

    How are HMO synthesized in the mother's lactating mammary gland?

    How do HMO benefit the breast-fed infant and potentially also the breast-feeding mother?

    Our lab uses a multidisciplinary collaborative approach that combines preclinical studies and human cohort studies with the goal to identify structure-function relationships in a variety of clinical contexts related to maternal and infant health.
