Microbiology-Immunology Seminar Series


In this seminar, the role of the early-life microbiome in juvenile and adult disease will be examined. Using human and animal model data, new evidence will be presented to support a model of in utero fetal colonization with microbes, demonstrate a role for early life acquisition of bacteria in the development of juvenile asthma, and elucidation of a novel route of neonatal infection by maternal microbiota leading to longterm neuro-behavioral changes.
