Exploring the impact of gut microbiota on host aging

The human gut microbiota, consisting of trillions of microorganisms, encodes diverse metabolic pathways that impact host gastrointestinal health and systemic immunity. We seek to identify novel molecular mechanisms of gut microbe-host interactions and find molecular candidates for microbiota-targeted therapeutics to ameliorate age-associated health decline.
