Research describing the bidirectional relationship between diet and the gut microbiome has made significant progress. Human studies have advanced our understanding of how food groups, food additives and dietary patterns alter the gut microbiome and homeostasis. This knowledge, in addition to continued research in this area, may help determine a way forward from existing nutrition controversies and guide future dietary recommendations.

Speaker Bio: Kelsey M. Mangano, Ph.D., R.D., is Associate Professor and Director of Nutritional Science at The University of Massachusetts, Lowell. She is a member of the Center for Population Health at UML and the Center for Microbiome Research, UMass Medical School. Professor Mangano’s research lab aims to elucidate mechanisms behind the impact of nutritional factors and food additives on musculoskeletal aging and the gut. Current mechanisms include alterations in the gut microbiome and metabolomic response to nutrition. Learning
