Session chairs and presenters include:

Christian Hoffmann

Dr. Hoffmann focuses his research on the interplay between the gut microbiome, diet and immune modulation, how it changes as we shift our lifestyles, and how to make use of this relationship to promote human health. His laboratory employs a multidisciplinary approach to address these questions, using both population surveys and human clinical studies. One of the ongoing study models uses unavailable carbohydrates to try to reveal how diet elements modulate the intestinal microbiome, directly as energy sources, and through their influence on the immune system.
