"Recent advances in technology and experimentation have led to a much-expanded view of the human microbiome. Researchers are discovering how deeply intertwined our health and well-being is with the microbes that live on and particularly inside our bodies. They contribute to multiple pathways and processes, including protecting against harmful pathogens, priming and modulating our immune system, and releasing metabolites that are absorbed through the gut and potentially impact everything from our susceptibility to neurodegenerative diseases to cancer metastasis. Ever since the power of our microbiome became clear, we have been trying to influence its function—or correct its dysfunction—through a range of means, from ingesting various microbes themselves to providing the substrates on which they feed to encourage their growth. There is even growing evidence that transplanting fecal samples from a donor individual can impact the health of a recipient. This webinar will explore some of the latest research that examines the potentially healthful effects of manipulating the microbiome.

During the webinar, the audience will:

  • Learn how the human microbiome impacts our health and can alter the course of disease
  • Discover the difference between prebiotics, probiotics, and postbiotics, and how they are being used to shape the microbiome
  • Hear about the latest research on the metabolic changes brought about by modifications to the microbiome
  • Be able to submit their questions to the speakers during the live broadcast.

This webinar will last for approximately 60 minutes."
