Call this the Age of the Microbiome. Just a few short years ago, in 2012, the first “map” of the microbial species that live on and in the human body was published. Today, the data just keep coming that reveal the myriad connections between a person’s health—or an organism’s behavior—and the status of his, her or its microbiome, with correlations found in traits ranging from obesity to autism to ulcerative colitis.
One of the researchers at the forefront of microbiome research is Jack Gilbert, group leader for Microbial Ecology at Argonne National Laboratory and Associate Professor at the University of Chicago, as well as a faculty member at MBL. Catch up with Gilbert and the latest frontiers in microbiome research here, in a detailed profile in this month’s issue of The University of Chicago Magazine.
