Title: "Probing interactions between drugs and the human gut microbiota"
Abstract: Drugs both impact the human gut microbiota and their bioavailability is modified by gut microbes. Here, I will present recent highlights from our efforts to systematically map this drug-microbiome interface, to understand its impact on the gut microbiota, to address the emergence of communal behaviors against drugs, and to discover ways to mitigate the collateral damage of drugs, and especially of antibiotics, on gut microbes.
