Assistant Professor, Katie Amato, receives award from the Wenner-Gren Foundation

October 11, 2017

An award from the Wenner-Gren Foundation will support research investigating differences in the capacity of human and non-human primate gut microbes to produce energy and program host metabolism. The ultimate goal is to determine if humans exhibit a unique relationship between diet, the gut microbiota, and physiology that is relevant for understanding the potential role of the gut microbiota in shaping human metabolic and physiological changes over evolution.
