EP105 – The life in our guts [w/ Lindsay Hall]

The human body is inhabited by a complex and rich community of microorganisms. They form the basis of our health and mood. Scientists today constantly learn more about this microflora and its impact on our immune system. They’re close to giving us medicine that will improve our chances of combatting different illnesses and pathogens. To learn more, we turn to Dr. Lindsay Hall.

Together, we tackled some important questions:

  • What is the difference between the microbiota and the microbiome?
  • What is actually the microbiome and what do we know about it?
  • How does the microbiome affect the immune system?
  • How can we cultivate a rich and healthy gut flora?
  • What should we munch on and what foods to shun away from?
  • What are the new treatments that can be developed based on current microbiome research?

About the guest

Lindsay Hall is a Lead Researcher at the Quadram Institute. She is researching the connections between our microbiome and our immune system. She has a Ph.D. in Microbiology and Immunology from the University of Cambridge, UK.
