Annual Dairy Council Nutrition Lecture at Ulster University 2018

Professor Paul Ross from University College Cork delivered the 29th Annual Dairy Council for Northern Ireland Nutrition Lecture at Ulster University on 14th November.

Professor Ross spoke to an audience of more than 140 academics, nutrition students and health professionals on ‘Human Microbiome Solutions to Fight Infection and Prevent Disease’.

The Annual Lecture represents long–standing co–operation between Ulster University and the Dairy Council the purpose of which has been to provide a forum for world class research to be presented in key areas of human nutrition. 

Speaking at the event Professor Ross said,

“The human microbiome consists of a complex population of trillions of microorganisms including bacteria, viruses, and fungi that live in the human intestine. It is established from birth where it has a profound impact on early infant health and indeed probably in later life. At APC Microbiome Ireland we are adopting a number of strategies to influence the microbiome towards improved health outcomes. These include the use of specific dietary interventions ranging from dairy ingredients to complex carbohydrates to novel antimicrobial strategies. We believe that such strategies will allow the sculpting of the microbiome composition in a precise way to deliver functionality for improved health outcomes.”
