La Jolla CAThe trillions of bacteria, or “microbiota,” that reside in our gut emit chemical signals that enhance our immunity and help fight disease. Scripps Research professor Howard Hang, PhD, has discovered important links between specific species of microbes and immunity, laying the groundwork for new approaches to more effectively prevent infections and treat cancer and other diseases.
