Title: Gut microbiome: a new target for managing human health

 

 

   Biography
 
Professor Liping ZHAO is a distinguished professor of microbiology at School of Life Sciences and Biotechnology, Shanghai Jiao Tong University. He is a senior editor of the ISME Journal and a fellow of American Academy of Microbiology.
 
Liping has contributed significantly to the understanding of the causative role of the gut microbiota in obesity and related metabolic diseases. Using the logic of Koch’s postulates as a conceptual framework for demonstrating the etiological role of specific members of the gut microbiota in obesity, he showed that one endotoxin-producing opportunistic pathogen isolated from the gut of a morbidly obese volunteer causes obesity in germfree mice. He shows that traditional Chinese medicinal food plants can alleviate obesity and diabetes with gut microbiota as a primary target, opening new avenues for managing the devastating epidemic of metabolic diseases. SCIENCE magazine featured a story on how he combines traditional Chinese medicine and gut microbiota studies to understand and fight obesity (Science 326: 1248).
