Probiotics and the Gut Microbiome.
As part of a two part special interest group initiative, Farm to Fork, with our sister SIG, Infectious Disease (co-ordinated by Dr Katie Laird, DMU) we are looking at the nutrition perspective of microbiology, namely probiotics and why a healthy gut is important. Micro-organisms are integral to our health and wellbeing. In these two networking meetings we shall be exploring how the role of micro-organisms both good and bad are pivotal to our continued health.
