The MyNewGut project, which falls under the European Union’s Seventh Framework Programme, has spent the last 5 years researching how the human gut microbiota and its genome (microbiome) influence obesity, behavioural- and lifestyle-related disorders and vice versa. The aim of the project was to identify specific dietary strategies to improve the long-term health of the population.

Research regarding the gut microbiota has exploded and it is one of the hottest emerging health topics. No longer simply a digestive organ, the gut and its microbiota has now been revealed as having a role in metabolism, immunity and even behaviour. Research has also revealed the dynamic nature of our gut microbiota over the lifespan – with composition changes…

Eran Segal Computer Science Department, Weizmann Institute of Science Abstract: Accumulating evidence supports a causal role for the human gut microbiome in obesity, diabetes, metabolic disorders, cardiovascular disease, and numerous other conditions. I will present our research on the role of the human microbiome in health and disease, aimed at developing personalized medicine approaches that combine human genetics, microbiome, and nutrition. In one project, we tackled the…

Our gut microbiota may be involved in mediating interactions between the enteric nervous system and central nervous system (CNS) through the gut-brain axis. The impact of commensal gut microbes on CNS functions have been studied mostly in mice. As such, the antibiotic-induced CNS consequences of manipulating humans' gut microbiota are still unknown. A new double-blinded randomized study led by our…

Prof. Dr. Paul Enck, Director of Research, Dept. of Psychosomatic Medicine and Psychotherapy, University Hospital Tübingen, Germany. His main interests are gut functions in health and disease, including functional and inflammatory bowel disorders, the role of the gut microbiota, regulation of eating and food intake and its disorders, of nausea, vomiting and motion sickness, and the psychophysiology and neurobiology of the placebo response, with specific emphasis on age and gender contributions. He has published more than 170 original data paper in scientific, peer-reviewed journals, and more than 250 book chapters and review articles. He is board member/treasurer of the European Society of Neurogastroenterology and Motility and of the German Society of Neurogastroenterology and Motility, and has served as reviewer for many international journals and grant agencies.

Warren Peters has dedicated the last part of his medical career to study the molecular and genetic basis of obesity. In this talk at TEDxLaSierraUniversity (California, US) held in April 2016, Peters wonders if the new discoveries about the microbiome may change the way we understand diabetes and obesity, as well as Alzheimer's disease, autism, and our everyday health and…

A growing number of scientific studies show the diet can affect health through the gut microbiota. However, foods and dietary patterns actually have differing effects on the gut microbiota between individuals. In modulating the gut microbiota of infants, prebiotics and probiotics could turn out to be useful. Treatments with specific probiotics could help regulate an unbalanced microbiota and thus improve,…
