About

In late 2014, Duke University scientists Dave D’Alessio, Rodger Liddle, and Diego Bohórquez got together to share data and to talk gut-brain science. Little did they know, this meeting would give birth to GASTRoNAUTS – a focused group of researchers passionate about gut-brain matters.

We are endocrinologists, engineers, gastroenterologists, immunologists, microbiologists, neurologists, neurobiologists, neuroengineers, psychiatrists, psychologists, therapists, patients, and above all we care about gut-brain matters. From food to mood, we are always thinking about how to tap into the gut to improve human health and the world we live in.

Our mantra is where the gut meets the brain. Do you like this intersection? Cheer us on. Would you like to accelerate our research? Funding is the way. Should you find yourself resonating with our mantra, join us. Together we can create knowledge that may enable us to treat the brain from the gut.
