GUT MICROBIOME AND HEALTH

Associate Professor Andrew Homes, from the School of Environmental and Life Sciences, University of Sydney, is currently performing research on understanding the mechanisms of host-microbe interaction in the gut. This important area of research is gaining traction throughout the Scientific community and has implications for the Pharmaceutical and Nutraceutical industries worldwide.

Andrew will present on: “A deeper understanding of factors that influence the assembly of microbial communities is essential for both human and environmental health. Andrew’s current research encompasses both these with a particular focus on understanding the dynamics of gut microbial community composition, the mechanisms of host-microbe interaction in the gut and development of tools to enable management of the gut microbial ecosystem for health. This work spans the development of health interventions for individuals such as nutraceuticals, the bigger picture aspects of the food system in public health and how changes in the nutrient environment drive animal ecology.”
