Did you know that we can find more than 100 trillion of good bacteria in our body? According to a study carried out by more than 80 universities and 200 researchers, humans are made up of more microbes than human cells. Although these figures show us the importance of microbes in our health, the knowledge in that field remained largely…

Heather Galipeau is a Research Associate at McMaster University (Canada) where she is researching dietary and microbial interactions in celiac disease and inflammatory bowel disease. She obtained her PhD in 2015 from McMaster University in Elena Verdu’s lab, during which she found that the small intestinal microbial background influences the degree of immuno-pathology triggered by dietary antigens, such as gluten.

The accumulation of excess abdominal fat is a crucial risk factor for cardio-metabolic disease and recent research has shown that gut microbiota may play an important role in obesity and metabolic disorders. However, little is known regarding the relationship between visceral fat and the human faecal microbiome. A recent cross-sectional study, led by Prof. Tim Spector and Dr. Jordana Bell…

In the year 2006, a PubMed search for “microbiome” papers yielded just 119. Now, a decade later in the year 2016, that number was 4,805. Given the reality of limited funding and know-how, the exponential growth in the field of microbiome science means researchers will face an increasingly competitive milieu. But this worldwide network of scientific growth, which currently has…
