How the gut microbiome influences bone health

Friday June 14

The presentation covers:

  • Basics of bone physiology
  • Causes and mechanisms of reduced bone mass (disuse, diabetes, IBD)
  • How diet can affect the composition of the intestinal microbiota
  • How the gut microbiome influences bone health
  • Practical clinical applications

Watching this presentation and completing the assessment can contribute towards assessable Continuing Professional Development hours

About the Presenter

Laura R. McCabe is a Professor in the Departments of Physiology and Radiology and Director of the Molecular Metabolism and Disease Program and Beckman Scholar Program at Michigan State University. McCabe received her B.A. and Ph.D. from University of Chicago.  Her graduate training in gastrointestinal physiology examined diabetes-induced changes in intestinal epithelial cell gene expression and function. Her post-doctoral training at University of Massachusetts Medical Center, focus on molecular mechanisms regulating osteoblast differentiation.  Currently, she utilizes her training in gut and bone to identify the role of gut-bone signalling in mediating bone loss associated with disease (diabetes, intestinal inflammation) and aging (menopause). Working with probiotics, genetically modified mice and bacteria, mice with manipulated immune cell and cytokine (with colleague Dr. Parameswaran), and compounds that modify gut function,  the lab is occupied with pinpointing mechanisms of intestine-bone signaling and identifying novel gut-targeted therapies to prevent osteoporosis.
