The Human Microbiome: Sharing Our Bodies

This session was sponsored by ILSI, the ILSI Research Foundation, and ILSI branches worldwide.

The role of microbiota in health is an exciting field in nutrition science given the symbiotic relationship between the human host and its trillions of microorganisms. We are just beginning to understand their potential in mitigating disease and promoting health. In this session, designed for nutritionists, dietitians, and other health professionals, presenters described this complex, interdependent relationship; what we know about the role microbiota play in nutrient metabolism; and if and how we can modify the diet to improve our individual microbiomes.
