New Video: Sven Petterson “Gut Microbiome & Evolving Inner Self”

Prof. Sven Pettersson talks about his research into the gut-brain-axis and his views on the development of the microbiome research field.

Sven Pettersson is a cell biologist focusing on microbiome mediated mechanisms regulating mammalian host physiology. Ongoing projects seek to decipher microbiome mediated signalling pathways and metabolites that support cell metabolism relevant to neurons and muscle cells. He is highly recognised for discovering a link between the microbial communities in our gut and the development and function of the brain. His finding that gut microbes could change behaviour and affect key neuronal signalling pathways in animal models has provided important new insights in neurobiological research in CNS and lately also in ENS.
