Bernard Berger

Summary

Starting from birth and originating from mother, the gut microbiome is shaped by multiple factors such as delivery mode, early feeding and antibiotics use. Infant gut microbiome has been linked to multiple health outcomes, both short term and lifelong health, including immunity. Nestle Research is performing top notch research on early life microbiome, starting from pioneering research on probiotics 20 years ago, to analysis of microbiota in clinical studies in infants to better understanding what shapes microbiota, and the beneficial role of probiotic and HMOs via microbiota modulation.
