Rosa Krajmalnik-Brown and fellow researchers at the Swette Center for Environmental Biotechnology at ASU’s Biodesign Institute and the Mayo Clinic are discovering more about the critical roles microorganisms perform in maintaining human health.

Krajmalnik-Brown, an assistant professor in the School of Sustainable Engineering and the Built Environment, is the co-author of a recent article in the journal Nutrition in Clinical Practice discussing how knowledge about the capabilities of the “microbial communities” in the human body could help solve the many health problems – including growing global epidemics of malnutrition and obesity.

The research is reported on in an article posted on the research news website Science Codex.
