    Food-Microbiome Interaction: Implications for Health & Disease

    The human body is colonized by a vast number of commensal organisms, collectively termed the microbiome. Importantly, dysbiosis — dyregulation of this endemic microbiome — has been implicated in a myriad of human diseases ranging from inflammatory bowel disease, to depression.
