A general overview course on the main areas currently being studied in microbiology concerning the microbiome and human microbiota.
The beginner course is available to graduates and undergraduate students. It is focused on a general overview of the influences of the microbiota on humans during homeostasis and disease.
In the course, we will explore multiple factors that contribute to the establishment and alteration of the human gut microbiota. We will explore the gut-skin axis and the brain-skin axis and how the diet is playing a crucial role in shaping our unique microbiota signature.
We will also understand how altered gut bacterial composition (dysbiosis) has been associated with the pathogenesis of many inflammatory diseases and infections.
