About the webinar:
In this webinar, dietitians and gut microbiome specialists, Anita Tait and Bianca-Maree Harrington will highlight the connections between the gut microbiome and Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS). Recent advances of technology in DNA sequencing of microbial communities from human samples has vastly improved the ability to understand the composition and function of the gut microbiome in individuals with IBS. Anita will present Microba’s latest data findings showing these functional and compositional changes within the gut microbiome and IBS individuals. Bianca will then focus on the clinical utility of this latest research by presenting case studies of patients who have presented with IBS and discuss the practicalities of using gut microbiome analysis to inform treatment interventions, monitoring and evaluation.
