Speaker’s Research Interests: Professor Fredrik Bäckhed is an expert in cellular microbiology and mouse physiology.  The overall aim of Dr. Bäckhed’s research is to clarify the role of bacteria associated with the human body in the development of metabolic diseases, with particular emphasis on diabetes, steatosis, and atherosclerosis as well as delineating whether altered gut microbiota contributes to the beneficial effects of bariatric surgery. The translational approach that involves human cohorts, is utilized to identify differences in microbial communities associated with the body in disease states and germ-free mice to investigate the underlying molecular mechanisms promoted by specific bacteria. He trained as postdoc in Dr. Jeffrey Gordon’s laboratory at Washington University.
