Dr. Justin Sonnenburg, of Stanford University, is carrying out exciting research in the area of host-microbiota interactions. He is also the co-author of a popular book called “The Good Gut“.

Gut Microbiota for Health editors present a video interview with Dr. Sonnenburg as part of our conference highlights from the 2015 Keystone Symposium, “Gut Microbiota Modulation of Host Physiology: The Search for Mechanism“.

In this video, Dr. Sonnenburg answers the following questions:

  • How might bacteria create a pro-inflammatory or anti-inflammatory environment locally in the gut?
  • Can these inflammatory trajectories give us insights about how to treat chronic disease?
