Hariom Yadav, PhD is a Director of USF Center for Microbiome Research, Microbiomes Institute and Associate Professor, Neurosurgery and Brain Repair; Internal Medicine- Digestive Diseases and Nutrition at the University of South Florida, Tampa, FL. His team efforts are research focus on the role of gut microbiome in aging-related conditions like Alzheimer’s disease, obesity and diabetes via modulation of gut-brain axis. He has applied diverse-omics approaches to understand the disease pathophysiology of these aging-related disorders and new interventions to reverse gut abnormalities in efforts to improve the quality of life in older adults. His team utilizes both cutting-edge preclinical models and clinical cohorts to test their hypotheses and test regimens. His team has launched as one of its kind a large multi-site study called Microbiome in aging Gut and Brain (MiaGB) consortium study to harness the power of microbiome in improving healthy aging. He also co-founded the Postbiotics Inc and serving as Chief Scientific Officer. He is one of the pioneers to discover that some dead probiotic cells can work as good as live, but very strain dependent manner. His discoveries are significantly shaping and influencing the business models of industries in the gut and nutrition health.
