This project will provide training in state of the art in vitro models, metagenomics and targeted metabolomics, and measure how both nutrient diversity and exposure to antibiotics impacts on key metabolic processes mediated by microbial guilds responsible for stable network regulation within the gut microbiome. Using the latest advanced ecological models, we will generate new understanding of how diet can be used to support microbiome homeostasis and self-regulation and prevent the emergence of pathobionts like C. difficile, a significant gut pathogen especially in the elderly.
