    EP 138: Personalised medicine using microbiome models with Dr. Almut Heinken

    In this episode, we welcome Dr. Almut Heinken, Junior Professor at the INSERM Institute of Nutrition, Genetics, Environment, and Risk Exposure at Université de Lorraine. Her work focuses on multiscale metabolic modelling of host-microbiome interactions and their role in human health. She has contributed to the development of genome-scale reconstructions of human microbes, known as the AGORA resource. Almut has also developed tools to build personalised microbiome models and applied these models to inflammatory bowel disease, Parkinson’s Disease, and colorectal cancer. She is currently working on modelling the interactions between diet, the microbiome, and the epigenome. Tune in to this exciting discussion!
