Medical Honors Students

A team led by University of Florida College of Veterinary Medicine scientists found that the composition of gut microbiota—microbes living inside the intestine—in pregnant mice more reliably predicts susceptibility to, and severity of, malaria infection than do genetics.  “We’ve identified bacteria that can reduce the severity of the infection, which also translated into better pregnancy outcomes,” said lead researcher Julie M. Moore, Ph.D., a professor and chairman of the college’s department of infectious diseases and immunology. “That’s the feel good part of this research. If this ends up being something we can introduce into human populations, we’re saving babies.”
