Discovery Radio – Episode #30 – Trust Your Gut

How many times have you heard it? “Trust your gut!” Well, do you?

New findings from a recent clinical study on the human gut bacteria suggest that you should. On today’s show, we’ll learn about one local research team who’ve discovered a groundbreaking link connecting a bacteria type in our intestines’ gut floral with our risk for heart attacks, and can even be an indicator of the severity of heart attacks.

And we’ll hear from two leaders at the National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences to discover the present and future of translational science and clinical studies in our community and nationwide.

It’s all inside this edition of CTSI Discovery Radio!
