Estonian Microbiome Project, using electronic health data from more than 2500 biobank participants finds long-term antibiotic usage, independent from recent administration, has an impact on the microbiome, partly explaining the common bacterial signatures overlapping between diseases.
The Rector’s Office of the University of Tartu has decided that the university continues face-to-face teaching in spring semester 2021/22. To be able to meet in classrooms and avoid major viral outbreaks, it is still important to get vaccinated, stay home when ill and postpone large events.
The university aims to keep studies open as long as possible, which is why stronger safety measures are imposed.
Safe distancing should be maintained between people during classes, in public rooms and all, including those who are vaccinated, must wear masks in the university buildings. Only protective masks, not scarves or visors, may be used to cover the nose and mouth.
In order to keep the working and learning environment as normal as possible in the new academic year, the general rule of conduct applies that staff and students who work and study in the university buildings have been vaccinated against the coronavirus or wear masks.

At the beginning of the academic year, the University of Tartu and Tartu University Hospital are jointly organising vaccination days near the university’s study buildings to further improve the chances of starting face-to-face studies and meeting in the lecture halls.
University members who have not been vaccinated yet can get the vaccine against Covid-19 without prior booking in the following places:
at the university’s main building in room 140 (the first room on the right from the main entrance)
To help promote vaccination in Tartu and Tartu County, on Saturday, the vaccination bus of Tartu University Hospital moves from Raatuse 22 to the city centre, next to Tartu Kaubamaja. On the bus, it is possible to get vaccinated from 10 to 16.
The results of a study conducted with the participation of researchers from the University of Tartu will enable couples struggling with infertility to be treated more effectively in the future. The researchers found that the progesterone supplements used to promote pregnancy in infertility treatment cause different reactions than expected in patients with polycystic ovary syndrome, including inflammatory effects in uterine mucosal cells.
This week the vaccination team from the University of Tartu Hospital will share information about coronavirus vaccinations on Car Free Avenue.
The vaccination team will be present on July 27 from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m., on July 28 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. and on July 30 from 10 a.m. to 12 noon.
