AoU Research Priorities Use Cases

Is the human oral and fecal microbiota associated with chronic disease risk factors, such as obesity and metabolic syndrome?

The human microbiota has been found to be associated with a number of health conditions, such as obesity. However, these studies have been relatively small and from convenience samples. It is important to understand how the human microbiota impacts these chronic disease risk factors in order to prevent future disease development. We propose collecting oral and fecal samples to determine associations with many chronic disease risk factors such as obesity, fatty liver disease, and smoking.
