Gut Check: A pressing need for paradigm changes around gut health
Women & Philanthropy grant events feature the incredible faculty research and programs that our members fund through their collective giving.Tuesday, March 17, 2020
Antibiotic resistance, gut health and noncommunicable diseases have critical impact on life and health, agriculture production and food safety. Join us to learn how Ohio State researchers are turning their groundbreaking discoveries into real life practices across medicine, agriculture and food, and how the ongoing work and paradigm shift around gut health will alleviate disease burdens affecting everybody.

Trained from University of Minnesota and NIH, Dr. Hua Wang has delivered a series of groundbreaking discoveries and targeted solutions and led the innovative and paradigm changes for effective mitigation of antibiotic resistance across food, agriculture and medicine, gut microbiota dysbiosis and related diseases for over a decade. She also provided extensive services to the professional communities by served as Chair of Food Microbiology Division, American Society for Microbiology (ASM), Chair of Biotechnology Division, Institute of Food Technologists (IFT), President of Sino-Micro, and ASM distinguished speaker. She received 2015 Director’s Innovator of the Year Award from OARDC, and 2009 BETHA award from the OSU Provost’s Office for her pioneering work on combating antibiotic resistance in the global ecosystem.
Matthias S. Klein, PhD, focuses on the novel research field metabolomics, analyzing changes in metabolic pathways, for example to predict disease development and progression. Dr. Klein earned his degrees at the University of Regensburg, Germany, and held Postdoctoral positions at the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität Munich and the University of Calgary, before he joined The Ohio State University’s Department of Food Science and Technology. Dr. Klein’s current research topics are the metabolic impacts of gut microbes, pathogen metabolism, metabolic effects of functional foods, and analyses on maternal health.
