An introduction to gut health, immunity and the microbiome

Dr. Mike Kogut, research microbiologist with the USDA Agriculture Research Service, will introduce the intestinal trio and the relationship between gut microbiota, metabolites and immunity, including detailed discussion of inter-organ communication in the gut and regulation of tissue physiology. He will further explore host defense mechanisms for disease resistance and disease tolerance and how metabolism can manipulate host defenses.

What you will learn:
• How inter-organ communication relates to regulation of tissue physiology
• The mechanisms of host defenses for disease resistance and tolerance
• How metabolism manipulates host defenses
  • An Introduction to Gut Health, Immunity and the Micobiome
