Welcome to Nutritional and Microbial Metabolomics Lab
The human gut microbiome is an incredibly complex and fascinating ecosystem that plays a critical role in our overall health and well-being. Trillions of microbes, their genes, and metabolites make their home in our gut, where they perform a wide range of essential functions that regulate our metabolism. As a team, we are deeply passionate about exploring this captivating realm of science and discovering new ways to modulate the gut microbiome for optimal host metabolism. We recognize that an imbalance in the gut microbial profile, known as dysbiosis, can have profound adverse effects on our health and lead to the development of chronic diseases like obesity, type 2 diabetes, non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, and even mental disorders. To unravel the power of the gut microbiome and unlock its potential to promote health and prevent chronic diseases, we rely on cutting-edge technology and approaches like next-generation sequencing and metabolomics. With these tools, we aim to better understand the complex interactions between our gut microbiome and the nutrients we consume, such as dietary B-vitamins, probiotics, prebiotics, and more. We invite you to join us on this exhilarating journey of discovery into the amazing world of the human gut microbiome and its metabolome.
