Does bacteria in your gut impact blood pressure?
Most of the medications for high blood
pressure are focused on organs and corrections of their functionality such
as the kidney the vessels and the heart but this is a new area where we stay
away from all of those and bring a new paradigm that the gut bacteria influence
your blood pressure. Getting this grant is huge there’s a lot of new exciting
opportunities that we have with the new UT microbiome consortium that we’ve
started we’re right on the cutting edge of everything there’s so many different
opportunities to study different aspects of how gut microbiota regulate various
disease including blood pressure which is what our grant is specifically for.
