Topic: "Development of Microbiota-Directed Foods for Treatment of Childhood Undernutrition: Opportunities and Challenges"

The Human Gut Microbiome & Nutrition Symposium is the inaugural event of a collaboration between the Center for Gut Microbiome and Nutrition Research, the Global Health Center, a multidisciplinary team of Washington University faculty and trainees, and the International Centre for Diarrheal Disease Research, Bangladesh (icddr,b). The focus of the Symposium is the science & regulations, implementation & intervention, and community engagement around a microbiota-directed food intervention to treat, and most importantly prevent disorders arising from abnormal postnatal development of the gut microbiota in children with undernutrition in Bangladesh. Leading experts from around the world and those here at Washington University, will gather on Danforth campus to discuss the highlights and challenges in the field. The Symposium is a great opportunity for faculty and students to engage in innovative outstanding research.
