I am fascinated by how our immune system and our gut microbes work harmoniously to protect us from disease and infection every single second. I am curious about how we can support our microbiota and, in turn, our immune system through the food we choose to eat.

After eating a high fat meal, individuals have increased levels of circulating bacterial-derived endotoxin, lipopolysaccharide. Continuously elevated circulating levels of endotoxins increases the risk of developing chronic inflammatory diseases and impairing metabolic health. Dietary fat plays an important role in endotoxin uptake into intestinal epithelial cells. Thus, I am researching the effect of different combinations of dietary fats on intestinal absorption of endotoxins to understand how fat can contribute to disease prevention and a healthy diet.
