Read article - George O'Toole, a professor of microbiology and immunology and an adjunct professor of biological sciences, is featured in an article about his research into how bacteroides in the gut bacteria may ease symptoms for cystic fibrosis patients. "We think this establishes the idea that changes in the gut are causing a reprogramming of the immune system in such a way that the body isn't as sensitive to subsequent airway infections, so you don't have as much disease burden," O'Toole said.
