Long considered passive passengers in our bodies, the gut microbiome has a surprising ability to influence other organs’ functions. Researchers have discovered intricate connections between intestinal bacteria and the immune system, metabolism, and nervous system. In this webinar brought to you by The Scientist, Sarkis Mazmanian and Daniel Mucida will discuss their work on the molecular pathways that make up the gut-brain axis, including neuro-immune connections in the gut and biosynthetic bacterial molecules that influence behavior.

Topics to be covered

  • Gut bacterial molecules that impact oligodendrocyte function and axon myelination
  • Bacterial-induced effects on intestinal neuron regeneration during homeostasis and infection
