Microbiota and chronic under nutrition: A strategic presentation by Pr François Leulier

Franois Leulier MicrobiotaPr François Leulier from the Institute of Functional Genomique at Ecole Nationale Supérieure de Lyon, France will review the current knowledge and their recent work on the interconnection between malnutrition, intestinal microbiota, juvenile growth and glucose metabolism.

Then Pr Leulier will shed light on our preclinical work using insect and murine models about the functional relevance of interventions using qualified lactobacilli strains to buffer the deleterious effect of malnutrition on juvenile growth and glucose metabolism. Finally, he will illustrate their current understanding of the molecular mechanisms underlying such effects.
