How Nutrition Can Shape Gut Microbiota  - Alessio Fasano (March 2016)



How Nutrition Can Shape Gut Microbiota and its Implications in the Autoimmunity Epidemics: The Lesson Learned From Celiac Disease – presented by Alesso Fasano, MD on March 17, 2016

Alessio Fasano, MD, is the W. Allan Walker Chair of Pediatric
Gastroenterology and Nutrition and Chief of the Division of
Pediatric Gastroenterology and Nutrition at Massachusetts
General Hospital for Children (MGHfC). His visionary research,
which established the rate of celiac disease at one in 133 people,
led to the awareness of celiac disease as a growing public health
problem in the United States. Dr. Fasano founded the Center for
Celiac Research and Treatment in 1996, where he treats adults and children for gluten-related disorders.
Dr. Fasano is also Director of the Mucosal Immunology and Biology Research Center (MIBRC) at MGHfC. In 2000, he and his team discovered the protein zonulin, opening up the door to a new way of looking at the function of intestinal permeability, not only as it affects the gut, but also what role it plays in both inflammation and autoimmunity throughout the body.
Current research directed by Dr. Fasano encompasses both basic science focused on bacterial pathogenesis, the gut microbiome and intestinal mucosal biology, as well as translational science focused on interventional clinical trials in autoimmune and inflammatory diseases with an ultimate goal of prevention.
A passionate advocate for collaboration in research and clinical work, Dr. Fasano recently authored Gluten Freedom to provide patients, healthcare providers and general readers an evidence-based yet entertaining book to dispel confusion about gluten and how it can affect your health. Dr. Fasano is widely sought after as an expert in celiac disease, intestinal permeability and autoimmune disorders and has been featured in media outlets around the world, including National Public Radio, The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Daily Mail, Elle, TIME and other online and media outlets.
