  • Advances in Human Microbiome Science: Gut-Brain Interaction

    Tuesday, March 15, 2016 | 8:30 AM - 5:00 PM
    The New York Academy of Sciences

    Presented by the Microbiome Science Discussion Group at the New York Academy of Sciences

    The microbiota in the human colon form one of the densest bacterial ecosystems known in nature. These microbial communities are integrally involved in maintaining numerous functions to keep humans healthy.

    While research has traditionally focused on the role of the microbiome in disorders of the gut, there is a growing appreciation of a significant connection between microbiota and the central nervous system. The importance of the interconnectedness of these physiological systems is demonstrated upon dysregulation of the endemic microbiome which has been implicated in CNS development, psychiatric disorders and neurodegenerative disease.

    This symposium focuses on the microbiota-gut-brain axis. It will highlight emerging science that is furthering our understanding of causal relationships between our microbiota and disease, as well as applications for human health. This is the second in a series of symposia addressing the impact of microbiota on the whole human.
