    Name: 2019 SciTech Lecture Series: Gut Microbiome - A Goldmine of Therapeutics and Biomarkers of Aging-Related Metabolic Disorders
    Date: April 11, 2019
    Time: 4:00 PM - 7:00 PM EDT
    Event Description:
    Gut Microbiome: A Goldmine of Therapeutics and Biomarkers of Aging-Related Metabolic Disorders presented by Hariom Yadav, Ph.D. Assistant Professor, Molecular Medicine, Wake Forest University School of Medicine

    The central research goal of Yadav’s lab at Wake Forest School of Medicine is to improve the understanding about mechanism(s) involved in gut microbiome-mediated pathology of metabolic diseases like diabetes, obesity and aging, and to develop treatment options to prevent and/or cure these health ailments. His research program focuses on three major interconnected themes: Defining the contribution of gut microbiome/virome on microbiomegut-brain axis to regulate energy metabolism via modulating enteroneuroendocrine-immune axis; studying the development of human-origin probiotics and studying of microbiome-drug interactions to modulate drug efficacy.Yadav received his bachelor of science degree and his master of science from Jiwaji India; and his doctor of philosophy from the National Dairy Research Institute in India. He has published extensively on research into obesity and diabetes pathology, as well as developing therapies using nutritional and pharmacological approaches.
