Christian Hoffmann


Assistant Professor of Microbiome and Nutrition, at the Dept of Food Sciences and Experimental Nutrition, at the University of São Paulo, Brazil, and a Research Fellow at the Laboratory of Applied Immunology, at the University of Brasilia. His experience is focused on the molecular ecology of microbial systems, especially host-associated microbial ecosystems. For the last 10 years, he has centered his research questions on the human gut microbiome, using both human studies as well as animal models. Key aspects of this research include the influence of the gut microbiome on health and disease, the modulation of the gut microbiome through diet and the immune system, especially through the use of unavailable carbohydrates.
