Most of us want to lower our cardiometabolic (CM) risk* in order to live long and healthy lives; that is, we want to have what doctors define as a low risk of developing cardiovascular disease and diabetes. What is the relationship between our gut microbiota and our cardiometabolic risk? Little is known so far, but the study we are sharing…

Paul Cotter and his team at the University of Cork (Ireland) are studying athletes for the impact of sports activities of varying intensity on the gut microbiota and the derived and human metabolites composition.

Manon Oliero
Manon Oliero is starting her PhD about gut microbiota, nutrition and cancer at the CRCHUM of Montreal. Before, she specialized in the gut microbiota and nutrition field by obtaining a master’s degree in Paris in microbiology and a food and health engineer degree in Beauvais. She first meets the scientific communication world in Barcelona after her work on gut microbiota and diet at the VHIR. She is really concern about health of the population and believe that with a better diet and lifestyle we can all make ourselves healthier.
