APS-ASPET Presidential Symposia Series: Microbiome. Gut Microbiome and Metabolic Disorders

Symposium — Sunday, April 7, 2019 — 8:30 AM - 10:00 AM — Convention Center, Room W314
President's Symposium Series — Chair: Jeff M Sands — Co-Chair: Edward T. Morgan

The gut microbiome is a key contributor to gut health, as well as to metabolic disorders including obesity and type II diabetes.  In this APS-APSET Presidential Symposia, the leading researchers in the field will describe recent advances which further illuminate both how the microbiome can affect host physiology, and how changes in host behavior (i.e., diet, antibiotic use) can affect the microbiome.  Speakers will cover topics including how host-microbial interactions affect intestinal health, how the use of antibiotics can alter the role of the microbiome, and how the microbiome can influence metabolic outcomes of the host.
