“Gut microbial colonization during early life influences human development by triggering age-dependent immune mechanisms. Although considerable research effort has been made to understand microbial influences on health in early life, many of the processes through which microbial exposures facilitate immune system development remain to be identified.” (Prof. Marie-Claire Arrieta)

The GMFH publishing team is pleased to share a new summary document—this one on the latest scientific work on gut microbiota in early life. With an editorial from Prof. Marie-Claire Arrieta, Assistant Professor in the Department of Physiology & Pharmacology and the Department of Paediatrics at the Cumming School of Medicine at the University of Calgary (Canada), this document contains a selection of key scientific studies related to babies and gut microbes, plus a list of resources for further reading.

The GMFH team will continue to keep you updated on this exciting topic—check our website regularly or subscribe to our twice-monthly newsletter!
