Jeffrey Gordon: Research in Biology

Dr. Gordon focused his early research on the development of cell lineages. These cell lineages live within the gastrointestinal tract. This initial study gave important insight about how biochemical properties of the gut use lipids. This study also found out how lipids are transported in the digestive system. Dr. Gordon’s group then published a seminal study with the help of  functional genomics. He then documented the process of microbial colonization.

Dr. Jeffrey Gordon is an internationally acclaimed  pioneer in his search for gut-microbial ecology and how it evolves. In another research, his team helped to establish the effect of two different types of weight-loss diets on over-weight subjects. In this way, Dr. Gordon concluded the kind of role our adaptive immune system plays and how it maintains a relationship between the host and microbes in the gut.

Dr. Gordon researched and authored the whitepaper, The 2005 National Human Genome Research. Later in 2007, his Micro-Biome Project was listed as one of the New Pathways to Discovery.
