The AussieGut™ Project

The Aussie Gut project is looking at the role of our gut bacteria in health and disease.

The bacteria in our gut are known to outnumber human cells in the body and play important roles in digestion, nutrient production and immune modulation.

Research is increasingly showing that our gut microbiome plays an important role in health and disease, influencing body mass, metabolism, allergies and respiratory infections.

A team of dedicated people at Griffith University are leading the charge to find out more; join them in learning about the way your gut bacteria influences your health!
