UMD Researchers to Study Complex Gut-microbiome-brain Axis System

Reza Ghodssi (ECE /ISR / Fischell Institute), with Wolfgang Losert (IPST / Physics / IREAP), William Bentley (BioE /Fischell Institute / IBBR) and Jens Herberholz (Psychology / NACS), has been awarded a $1M grant from the National Science Foundation. Their project, "Developing engineering solutions to investigate microbiome-to-neuron communication", aims to provide a more realistic picture of the complex gut-microbiome-brain axis system (GMBA).
