Mini-Webinar: Diet as a Modulator of Inflammation and Immune Response via the Gut Microbiome: Toward Dietary Recommendations
July 26, 2022
12:30 pm – 1:00 pm
The gut microbiome plays a critical role in the development of the innate and adaptive immune systems. Low-grade inflammation, mediated through the microbiome, is a recognized risk factor for a variety of chronic diseases. With the capacity of diet to modify the gut microbiome and biomarkers of low-grade inflammation, better characterization of these interactions may inform new diet strategies for control of low-grade inflammation. While the mechanistic interactions between diet, the microbiome and the immune system remains largely unknown, recent research has enhanced our understanding of diet-microbiome-immunity crosstalk.
Join IAFNS for this public mini-webinar and dialogue with Dr. Emily Leeming and Dr. Sarah Berry of King’s College London.
After the mini-webinar, the IAFNS Gut Microbiome Committee will engage in-depth with the experts to consider priority research questions to address as part of the committee program. To learn more, and to join us, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
