North City Tech: Microbiome 101: what you eat feeds trillions

Wednesday, September 11, 2019

North City Tech Meetup, Monday, September 16, 2019, 7pm to 9pm, Lake Forest Park Library, at the Lake Forest Town Center, 17171 Bothell Way NE, Lake Forest Park. Free – Open to the public, no reservation required

William DePaolo, PhD. presents: 
 Microbiome 101: what you eat feeds trillions

The gut microbiome is believed to play an important role in human health. This means exploring host-microbiome interactions will be critical to enable new insights and treatments in human diseases. 

Dr. DePaolo will provide an overview of the latest scientific evidence related to gut microbiota, nutrition and probiotics and their importance to health across the lifespan. Particular focus will be on the interaction of diet and the gut microbiota; how probiotics influence the intestinal microbiome; and to determine how fermented foods, yogurt, etc., are important in human health.
