Impacts of the microbiome on the development of RA
View Polygence scholar page
Rheumatoid arthritis is a widespread disease that affects millions of people worldwide. Recent research has pinpointed diet and its impact on the gut microbiome as being a major player in the development of the disease. This project will focus on creating a review article that summarizes the field, what researchers are focused on, and what potential therapeutics will be used to treat the disease.

Kyler was very helpful throughout the project. He always asked if I understood the concept and even took time to explain a concept if it did not make sense to me.
