Event Type:  Seminar (This is an NIH Science event)
Title:  The Gut Microbiome: a Master Regulator of Metabolism
Description:  Humans and many other animals are home to enormous numbers of beneficial bacteria that profoundly influence health. The existence of beneficial resident microorganisms was first recognized in the late 1800's by Louis Pasteur, who founded the field of medical microbiology. However, we’ve only recently begun to acquire a molecular understanding of how resident microorganisms contribute to our health. The Hooper lab has spent more than a decade studying how resident bacteria of the gut communicate with our own cells to shape our physiology, our development, and our ability to fight infectious disease. In my talk, I will discuss our ongoing efforts to unravel this important bacteria-to-human conversation. In particular, I will focus on our recent studies of how resident intestinal bacteria regulate mammalian metabolism.
