Isabelle LURON, DR
• Nutritional programming
• Gut physiology
• Microbiota-host crosstalk
Research topics and scientific objectives
• Understand the impact of early nutrition (maternal diet and infant formula composition) on gut physiology and consequences in adults facing an adverse nutritional environment
• Decipher the importance of early bacterial colonization on intestinal homeostasis later in life and relationship with glucose metabolism
Education and main positions held
CLIMAPIG : Research collaborative project with the industry – Impact of infant formula composition on gut digestion and physiology and glucose metabolism using the mini-pig as model for human infant and adult.
FOSGUT : Research collaborative project with the industry – Impact of fructooligosaccahrides on intestinal physiology and glucose metabolism using the pig as model for human infant and adult.
EPIPIG : Research collaborative project with the industry – Importance of early bacterial colonization on further sensitivity to digestive disorders
HED-O-SHIFT : Identification of intestinal phenotypes correlated with neuro-behavioral patterns in obese mini-pigs undergoing laparoscopic Roux-en-Y gastric bypass
