Whistler Center welcomes Steve Lindemann

Dr. Lindemann's research targets the ways that dietary influences shape the gut microbiome and the effects of those shifts on health (such as inflammation and gut colonization by pathogens) with the goal of identifying dietary solutions to health problems. Specifically, he is focused on using molecular microbial ecology techniques to understand: how diet influences the composition and stability of the gut microbiome; how gut microbiome metabolism of dietary components influences production and absorption of bioactive microbial metabolites; how metabolic interactions between microbes alter polysaccharide fermentation and nitrogen metabolism in the colon; and how these interactions between beneficial microbes exclude pathogenic organisms and modulate inflammation in the colon.

Dr. Lindemann received his Ph.D. in Microbiology from the University of Iowa and conducted his postdoctoral research at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory.
