The trillions of bacteria, or “microbiota,” that reside in our gut emit chemical signals that enhance our immunity and help fight disease. Scripps Research professor Howard Hang, PhD, has discovered important links between specific species of microbes and immunity, laying the groundwork for new approaches to more effectively prevent infections and treat cancer and other diseases. In this Front Row lecture, you’ll learn the why specific bacteria in our body are such powerful mediators of health—and find out about breakthrough findings that are now on their way to becoming medicines.
