A Predictive Index for Health Status Based on Gut Microbiome Profiling
November 20, 2020
11:00 am – 12:00 pm
Join ILSI North America’s Gut Microbiome Committee for this webinar hosted jointly with the American Society for Nutrition. Dr. Jaeyun Sung of the Mayo Clinic will talk about his recent work to develop a predictive index for health status using species-level gut microbiome profiling, as published in Nature Communications in the summer of 2020 (https://doi.org/10.1038/s41467-020-18476-8). Dr. Sung will discuss his vision for this index as a potential tool for preventative medicine, including plans for further developing the algorithm and incorporation of data on microbial function. Dr. Sung is interested in community feedback so we are looking forward to an enlightening dialogue!
