@ VOL 24
ON AUG 15, 2018
Dr. Paul Giacomin from James Cook University, Cairns Campus discusses some of the fascinating recent research about the rise in rates of common diseases such as asthma, food allergies, diabetes and inflammatory bowel diseases in Australia, and how this may be linked to changes in our exposure to gut bacteria and parasites during childhood. Here he discusses how this information is being used to develop new "pro-biotic" treatments for these diseases.
