Kristyn Publishes Manuscript in Physiological Reports

Kristyn’s manuscript on the influence of acute lipopolysaccharide (LPS) administration on immune system activation and the gut microbiome of male and female hamsters has been accepted for publication in Physiological Reports! In this study, Kristyn showed that a single, modest dose of LPS activates an immune response and reduces food intake and body mass, but does not alter microbial composition or diversity in the gut.

A link for the manuscript can be found under the “Publications” page and can also be accessed here.
