Recorded: EIP 2011 ● Language: English ● Duration: 31 minutes Topic: Pediatric Nutrition

     
 

Speaker: JOSEF NEU, M.D, Professor, Department of Pediatrics, Division of Neonatology, University of Florida College of Medicine, Gainesville, Florida, USA

 
     
  Learning Objectives: (1) Be able to describe several beneficial functions of the resident microbes of the developing gastrointestinal tract. (2) Be able to discuss some of the mechanisms of how intestinal microbes shape the developing innate and adaptive immune systems. (3) Be able to describe recent studies linking the developing brain to the intestinal microbiota. (4) Describe some putative mechanisms of how aberrations in the developing intestinal microbiota may result in diseases such as necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC) and autoimmune diseases.
