Changes in the Gut Microbiome in ME/CFS and Long Covid

January 22 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm UTC+0

Solve Ramsay Research Grant winner David Esteban, PhD, (Assoc. Professor of Biology, Vassar College) will discuss ongoing work in his lab determining whether there is a link between changes in the gut microbiome and disease in ME/CFS and Long Covid. The collection of bacteria in the gut, known as the gut microbiome, produces many small molecules that can affect the immune, nervous, and gastrointestinal systems. In several other diseases, microbial products of the amino acid tryptophan have been linked to symptoms or disease severity.

In this webinar, Esteban will discuss his work to measure the amounts and activity of these important molecules in people with ME/CFS and Long Covid. Recruitment for Dr. Esteban’s study is being conducted on the Solve Together platform, for more information or to join, visit SolveTogether.org or email us at research@solvecfs.org.

This event is funded in part by an educational grant from Novavax.
