WEBINAR SERIESAutism and the Microbiome


Watch on demand!

Welcome to Episode 9 in the CosmosID Microbiome Webinar Series where we’ll be discussing the microbiome and autism, and our panel members are Dr. Rosa Krajmalnik-Brown, Dr. James B. Adams, and Dr. Rita R. Colwell.

We’ll be discussing the research Dr. Krahmalnik-Brown and Dr. Adams have done to date, 16S versus shotgun sequencing methods, metabolomics, interventions that show promise with up to date research, and so much more.

Webinar Speakers
Dr Rita Colwell
Distinguished University Professor @University of Maryland College Park
Dr. Rita Colwell is Distinguished University Professor at the University of Maryland at College Park and Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health.

Dr James B Adams
Director of the Autism/Asperger’s Research Program @Arizona State University
Dr. Adam’s research focuses on the medical causes of autism and how to treat and prevent it including the areas of nutrition (vitamins/minerals, essential fatty acids, carnitine, digestive enzymes, special diets), oxidative stress, gut problems, gut bacteria, toxic metals, and seizures. He has published over 150 peer-reviewed scientific articles, including over 50 related to autism. He is also the President of the Autism Society of Greater Phoenix, the President of the Autism Nutrition Research Center, the co-leader of the Scientific Advisory Committee of the Autism Research Institute, and chair of the Scientific Advisory Board of the Neurological Health Foundation.
